Fact.MR has announced the addition of the “2-Butanone Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2018 to 2028"report to their offering.
Rockville, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2018 -- Introduction
2-Butanone is an organic compound from a family of ketones that are found in trace amounts in nature. It is produced by few trees as well as found in certain vegetables and fruits. 2-Butanone is also known by names such as methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), butanone, butan-2-one, etc. It is a colourless liquid which has a sharp and sweet odour that resembles butterscotch or acetone. 2-butanone can be released from automobile exhaust. It is commercially produced by the catalytic dehydrogenation of 2-butanol and it can be also extracted by fractionation in Fischer-Tropsch reaction. 2-Butanone has various applications across different industries. However, among other applications, 2-Butanone is mainly used as a solvent in several industries. It is one of the components used in the production of solvent systems used for magnetic tapes. 2-Butanone is also used as an adhesive as well as a de-waxing agent. It is also used for degreasing metal surfaces, especially in the aerospace industry. Due to its wide applications, 2-butanone is gaining interest from many industries.
However, 2-Butanone is considered a hazardous air pollutant by some regions. It has the ability to potentiate the toxicity of other solvents and it is highly flammable in nature. Owing to these factors, regulations are being imposed on the exposure limit of 2-Butanone.
