Methyl Ethyl Ketone, Exceeds A.C.S. Specifications, HPLC Grade, also known as Butanone is a colorless and liquid organic compound that has a sweet, sharp odor similar to acetone. Soluble in water, it has a range of uses including as an industrial solvent. It also dissolves polystyrene and acts as a welding agent in model cement. As a solvent it has similar properties as Acetone but has a higher boiling point and does not evaporate as fast as acetone does.
