2-Butanone, also known as methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), is a colorless
liquid with a sweet, but sharp odor. 2-Butanone is manufactured in large
amounts for use in paints, glues, and other finishes because it rapidly
evaporates and will dissolve many substances. It will quickly evaporate
into the air. 2-Butanone is often found dissolved in water or as a gas
in the air. 2-Butanone is also a natural product made by some trees and
is found in some fruits and vegetables.
The exhausts of cars and trucks release 2-butanone into the air.
2-Butanone is usually found in the air, water, and soil of landfills and
hazardous waste sites.
In water, 2-butanone can be changed to a more simple chemical form by
natural biological processes and will be broken down in about 2 weeks.
It will not be deposited in the sediment of rivers or lakes, and it is
not expected to concentrate in fish. In air, 2-butanone will break down
under the influene of sunlight, although it does not react with sunlight
One-half of any given amount of 2-butanone in the air will break down in
1 day or less. It is not known if 2-butanone changes to a more simple
form by natural biological processes in the soil, but it is expected to
do so because similar substances are broken down by these processes.
2-Butanone will not stick to soil, and if it is spilled onto soil, it
will travel through the soil into underground water sources. Some of the
2-butanone found in soil or water will also evaporate to the air.
2-Butanone can enter the environment in a number of different ways. It
can enter the air or water from the waste of manufacturing plants.
2-Butanone is present in many different types of paints and glues used
both in the home and in industry.
As these products dry, 2-butanone will enter the air. 2-Butanone is also
in air because it is released in the exhaust of cars and trucks. Some
trees in the forest release 2-butanone to the air.
We do not know the background levels of 2-butanone in air, water, or
soil. We know that 2-butanone is found naturally in some foods. We know
it is found at hazardous waste sites, and it is also found occasionally
in drinking water and often in the air of cities. You may also be
exposed to 2-butanone by smoking cigarettes.
You may be exposed to higher levels of 2-butanone if you use glues or
coatings containing it in a small enclosed area that does not have good
People who use it at work have a good chance of being exposed to
2-butanone. 2-Butanone is used in such industries as shoe factories,
printing plants, plastics factories, and sporting goods manufacturers.
People who live near a toxic waste site where 2-butanone is kept may
breathe it if it evaporates into the air, or drink it if it gets into
the water supply, especially when the water supply come from wells.
2-Butanone can enter your body if you breathe air that contains it,
through your skin if it touches you, or through your mouth if you eat
food or drink water that has 2-butanone in it. Studies have shown that,
if there is 2-butanone in the air you breathe, at least half of what you
breathe in will enter your body.
The other half will leave in the air you breathe out. We do not know how
much 2-butanone will stay in your body if you drink it or if it touches
your skin. The amount of 2-butanone that actually enters your body
depends on how much is in the air you breathe, how much is in your food
or water, or how much gets on your skin.
The amount of 2-butanone that enters your body also depends on how long
you breathe it or how long it is on your skin before you wash it off.
Your body gets rid of 2-butanone in urine and in the air you breathe
out. 2-butanone is not a chemical that stays in your body for very long;
it will be gone by the next day.
Some people who breathed air that contained 2-butanone first noticed its
sweet, sharp odor at a concentration of 5-8 parts of 2-butanone per
million parts of air (5-8 ppm). The main health effects that have been
seen in humans who breathed higher concentrations of 2-butanone are mild
irritation of the nose, throat, eyes, and skin.
Serious health effects in animals have been seen only at very high
concentrations of 2-butanone. These high concentrations are not expected
in the usual use of 2-butanone or in the vicinity of hazardous waste
sites. Studies in animals have shown that 2-butanone does not cause
serious damage to the nervous system or the liver, but mice that
breathed low levels for a short time had temporary behavioral effects.
2-Butanone alone does not have serious effects on the liver or nervous
system, but it can cause other chemicals to become more harmful to these
Guinea pigs, rats, and mice that breathed high levels of 2-butanone for
a short time became unconscious and died. Pregnant rats and mice that
breathed air containing high levels of 2-butanone had underdeveloped
The rats that swallowed very high concentrations of 2-butanone in water
also developed signs of nervous system effects such as inactivity,
drooping eye lids, and uncoordinated muscle movement.
Some rats and mice that swallowed water containing high concentrations
of 2-butanone died. Rats that received water containing a lower
concentration of 2-butanone had mild kidney damage. Skin irritation
developed in rabbits and guinea pigs that had small amounts of
2-butanone dropped on their skin. Rabbits that had small amounts of
2-butanone dropped in their eyes had serious eye irritation.
We do not know whether 2-butanone causes birth defects or affects
reproduction in humans. Reproductive effects were not seen in animals
exposed to 2-butanone. We have no information about whether 2-butanone
causes cancer in humans or animals.
