About Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK), ACS Grade

Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), also known as butanone, is a colorless liquid with a sharp, sweet odor. It is widely used as a solvent in various industries, including paints, coatings, adhesives, and chemical processing. The ACS grade, which stands for American Chemical Society, indicates a high level of purity suitable for laboratory and analytical applications. ACS grade chemicals typically meet strict purity requirements set by the American Chemical Society. For MEK, this means it has been purified to a high standard, making it suitable for use in analytical chemistry, research, and other applications where precise measurements and minimal impurities are necessary.

It is a flammable chemical, colorless with an acetone-like odor. It is miscible in water, soluble in alcohol, ether, acetone, and benzene.
