Methyl Isobutyl Ketone

It is a ketone widely used as a solvent and it is coloured in nature. MIBK is used as a solvent for nitrocellulose, lacquers and certain polymers and resins.


It is a precursor to some products used as antiozonants in tyres. Its low solubility in water makes it useful for liquid – liquid extraction. MIBK is also used as a denaturing agent for denatured alcohol.
