Description

General description

2-Hexanone is a colorless to pale yellow liquid with sharp odor belonging to the class of ketones. It is obtained as a waste product of coal gasification, oil shale operations and wood pulping. It is widely used as a solvent in industry.

Application

2-Hexanone may be used as an analytical reference standard for the quantification of the analyte in biological samples using liquid chromatography−tandem mass spectrometry (LC−MS−MS).
