Additional information

Information regarding boiling point of MEK was sourced from two separate handbooks. Merck Index: An Encyclopedia of Chemicals, Drugs, and Biologicals (14th Edition) and CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (81st Ed), which are known to contain peer-reviewed data of Klimisch-2 reliability state that the substance boils at 79.6°C at an atmospheric pressure of 1013 hPa (corresponding to 352.75 K at 101300 Pa).
