MEK (2-butanone) and THF (tetrahydrofuran) were found in high concentrations in our laboratory's water outlets 6 mo after PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipe installation. Subsequent analysis confirmed that the solvents from the PVC pipe cement used to join the tubing were leaching into our water supply. Water samples were taken at various residence times in the pipe to observe the solvents' leaching kinetics.
