ABSTRACT
The article offers information on methyl ethyl ketone (MEK). It is stated that MEK is mainly used as a solvent for nitrocellulose, and acrylic and vinyl surface coatings and nearly 60 percent of global demand comes from paints and coatings. It is reported that the closure of Shell Chemical Co.'s plant in Louisiana at the end of the year 2005 had turned the US from a net exporter to a net importer of MEK. It has been removed from the U.S.'s hazardous air pollutants list in December 2005.
