acetone water (mixture)

I believe you can keep or drop "mixture". According to my reference#1, acetone water mixture is used to separate non water-soluble materials in a chromatography lab.

Example sentence(s):
  • as the percentage of acetone in the acetone water mixture increases, it increases the solubility of non-water-soluble molecules in this new solution.

aqueous acetone

When 水follows some substance, it implies an aqueous solution of the substance.
For example, アンモニア水 means aqueous ammonia.
