[UKPRwire, Fri Sep 28 2018] Butyl glycol also known as 2-Butoxyethanol
is acolourless, slightly hygroscopic, neutral, high-boiling, low-volatility liquid with a mild odour that is used as a solvent and starting material for many reactions.
Hyperprolactinemia, pregnancy, human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) infection, mustard gas poisoning, immunosuppression induced by cyclosporine, underlying malignancy, some chemokines, and bromide and 2-butoxyethanol
exposure all have been incriminated [6-11].
"Drying time is also a challenge because the evaporation of water requires much more energy than the evaporation of solvents (2260 J/g for water compared to 373 J/g for 2-butoxyethanol
as an example), and application conditions are important.
Additionally, 9500A contains petroleum distillates, whereas 9527A does not contain petroleum distillates but does contain 2-butoxyethanol
(Wise and Wise 2011).

As she learned more, Paula grew wary, particularly about the prospect of pumping fracking fluid--which often includes chemicals (such as benzene, 2-butoxyethanol
, and toluene) that are linked to cancer or damage to the liver, bone marrow, or central nervous system--below the valley's groundwater.
