Alternatives to Acetone for testing purposes

Hello out there;

We have a client who is a member of the Western Regional P2 network. She has asked for help on a replacement of acetone for use in the laboratory.

Her client uses acetone in testing the percent of oil in a Molybdenum Sulphide  (MoS2)  product.

Five grams of the product sample are stirred with aliquots of acetone three times, filtered each time, and the gooch crucible is dried.  A substitute would have to be volatile enough to be removed at 100 +/- degrees C.

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.
