Acetone is a member of the Ketone family of organic compounds. It is the simplest ketone possible with three carbons in a row with an oxygen doubled bonded to the central carbon atom.

For the Lewis structure for Acetone, calculate the total number of valence electrons for the Acetone molecule. After determining how many valence electrons there are in Acetone, place them around the central atom to complete the octets.

There are a total of 24 valence electrons in the Lewis structure for Acetone.
