Acetone and Lime

M. E. Freudenheim
1917 The Journal of Physical Chemistry  
When calcium acetate is heated alone, the reaction takes place chiefly as in the equation When calcium acetate is heated with an excess of lime the reaction takes place chiefly according to the equation Ca(CH,C02)2 + Ca(OH)2 = zCaC03 + 2CH4. From this it would seem to follow that when acetone is passed over heated lime, we should get the reaction CH3COCH3 + Ca(OH)2 = CaC03 + 2CH4.
