why is acetone used in halogen exchange?

Answer:

Hi,

It is a Finkelstein reaction. This reaction involves the conversion of an alkyl chloride or an alkyl bromide to an alkyl iodide by treatment with a solution of sodium iodide in acetone. Sodium iodide is soluble in acetone and sodium chloride and sodium bromide are not. Hence, acetone is used in halide exchange.
