Description of key information

Two separate TGD-approved handbooks agree that the substance is soluble in water.  No information on solution temperature or pH was reported.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Information regarding water solubility 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), known to contain peer-reviewed data of Klimisch-2 reliability, state that the substance is "soluble in about 4 parts water (27.5%)" and “very soluble” in water, respectively. No information on solution temperature or pH was reported.
