In order to increase the amount of colors and maintain the color fastness to light, washing or high temperature of the textiles, an extensive amount of research has been conducted to improve the limited swelling of fibers with the help of special dyeing auxiliaries such as carriers (e.g., acetophenone, methyl benzoate) or swelling agents containing dimethyl formamide, dimethyl sulfoxide and so on, which contribute to the ability of cationic dyes or disperse dyes to enter the internal space of the fibers [9-11].
The use of sulfuric acid in the presence of excess acetic acid and simultaneous microwave exposure causes a reaction that yields acetophenone from phenylacetylene in good yield.

[11] have developed magnetic microparticles immobilizing palladium acetate as heterogeneous coordination catalysts for selective oxidation of styrene allowing mainly to prepare acetophenone. Earlier, it was shown that in the presence of activated carbon (AC) and [H.sub.2][O.sub.2] as the oxidant, the styrene was selectively converted to benzaldehyde [12].
They found out that both species of vectors are attracted to ammonium bicarbonate and acetophenone [25].

Previous workers have reported that, depending on conditions, the major decomposition products of polystyrene are styrene and benzaldehyde (Beyler and Hirschler 2002), and possibly also phenyl ethanol, styrene oxide, cumene, and acetophenone (Pfaffli et al.
Only three compounds in the ketone class were identified: 6-methylhept-5-en-2-one, 2-pentanone, and acetophenone; PINO & QUERIS (2011) identified all three in the volatile fraction of fermented guava.
