Sol of Zr[O.sub.2]-8 wt.% [Y.sub.2][O.sub.3] was obtained using zirconium (IV) propoxide (70 wt.% in 1-propanol, Merck), acetylacetone as complexing agent and distilled water in mole ratios of 1: 1: 10, respectively.
The analytical data (Table 1) show that the Schiff bases behave as dibasic, tridentate ligands, hence complete replacement of the bidentate acetylacetone occurs under the reaction conditions and the ethanol occupies the sixth coordination position.
Synthetic medium: Citric acid, 0.5 g; [KH.sub.2][PO.sub.4], 0.1g; Mg[SO.sub.4], 0.2g; acetylacetone, 0.05 ml; Fe[Cl.sub.3], 50 mg; Zn[SO.sub.4], 1.0 mg; Mn[SO.sub.4], 0.03 mg; Cu[SO.sub.4], 1.5 mg; Co[SO.sub.4], 0.3 mg; Ni[SO.sub.4], 0.1 mg; HEPES, 7 g; distilled water, 1,000 ml; pH; 5.4
3e), and succinic acids and acetylacetone, or between the two oxygen atoms of carbonyl and hydroxyl groups like in maleic, diethylmalonic, 2-hydroxy-2-methylpropionic, 3-hydroxybutyric, and 3-amino-glutaric acids.
The tissue was neutralized with 6N NaOH and incubated with acetylacetone at 100[degrees]C for 15 min.
Briefly, [delta]-ALA reacts with acetylacetone and formaldehyde to form 2,6-diactyl-1, 5-dimethyl-7-(2-carboxyethyl)-3H-pyrrolizine (Figure 1), a derivative that can be quantified via fluorescence detection at excitation/ emission wavelengths of 370 nm and 460 nm, respectively.
Typically, hydrogen bond lengths vary from 2.00 A for the enol from of acetylacetone to 1.77 A for the dimer of acetic acid.

The use of acetylacetone as extractant of translocated organic matter.
Peroximon curing agents for polyester resins include MEK peroxides (K1 and K10), methylisobutyl ketone peroxide (K2), acetylacetone (K3), and cumene hydroperoxide (CH).
Formaldehyde reacts with acetylacetone (pentane-2, 4-dione, Nash reagent) to form 1,4-dihydroluthidine, which can then be quantitatively determined by photometric titration.
