Maximum level of impurities: Color (APHA) 15, Residue after evaporation 0.0025%, Titratable acid 0.0005meq/g, H2O 0.20%

Applications

2-Butanone is used as a solvent and for extractions in the pharmaceutical industry. 2-butanone acts as oxidant for the iridium-catalyzed oxidations of primary alcohols. It is useful for the catalytic transfer hydrogenation on MgO. It is used as a mobile phase in High Performance Liquid Chromatography.

Notes

It is stable, incompatible with oxidizing agents, bases, strong reducing agents.
