    Revision of D1153 - 06 Standard Specification for Methyl Isobutyl Ketone

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D1153 - 12

    Developed by Subcommittee: D01.35 | Committee D01 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK39087


    Keywords

    ketones; methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK); solvents; 2-methyl-4-pentanone;

    Rationale

    This standard was balloted for re-approval as is on the first ballot of 2012. It received a negative because of a reference to a mercury thermometer. The suggested revision from the negative voter was incorporated and does not exclude use of the mercury thermometer, but rather introduces the possibility of using a non-mercury thermometer.
