метил етил кетон
Explanation:


Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) is a colourless liquid with a sweet/sharp, fragrant, acetone-like odour. It is an EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND VAPOUR. The vapour is heavier than air and may spread long distances and distant ignition and flashback are possible. MEK is highly volatile. It is irritating to eyes and respiratory tract and a central nervous system depressant. High vapour concentrations may cause headache, nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, incoordination and confusion. MEK also causes eye irritation. It is an aspiration hazard. Swallowing or vomiting of the liquid may result in aspiration into the lungs. MEK is a POSSIBLE REPRODUCTIVE HAZARD - may cause fetotoxicity based on animal data.
