Applications
Acetone-1,3-dicarboxylic acid is used as a building block in organic chemistry. It is also used in the synthesis of hetrocyclic rings and in the Weiss-Cook reaction, which involves the preparation of cis-bicyclo[3.3.0]octane-3,7-dione by reacting with diacyl (1,2 ketone). Its presence in human urine is used as a diagnostic test for the overgrowth of harmful gut flora such as Candida albicans.

Solubility
Soluble in water and alcohol. Slightly soluble in ethyl acetate and ether. Insoluble in chloroform.

Notes
Hygroscopic. Incompatible with strong bases and strong oxidizing agents.
