Buy Ethyl Acetate in Bulk at Best Price :

The liquid form of ethyl acetate is transparent and colourless, and it has a fruity odor that most people find pleasant.. 24°F flash point not as dense as water. heavier than air vapours.

Ethyl acetate stands as one of the most basic carboxylate esters, with methyl formate being the simplest previously highlighted as Molecule of the Week. This clear liquid emits a pleasant, fruity scent that is generally well-received.

As anticipated, the creation of ethyl acetate initially involved the synthesis from ethanol and acetic acid. This process relied on the classic acid-catalyzed Fischer esterification, a method established as far back as 1895 and still widely employed in commercial synthesis. Another approach is the Tishchenko reaction, wherein acetaldehyde undergoes disproportionation in the presence of a base, leading to the formation of both the alcohol and acid, which subsequently esterify in situ.

Ethyl Acetate

As one might anticipate, ethanol and acetic acid were originally used to create ethyl acetate. The reaction was the traditional Fischer esterification that has been acid-catalyzed since 1895. This is still the commercial synthesis that is most frequently used. The Tishchenko reaction, which occurs when acetaldehyde disproportionates in the presence of base to alcohol and acid, and then esterifies in situ, is an alternate technique.

Ethyl Acetate Structure

The molecular formula of ethyl acetate is C4H8O2. It can be written as CH3-COO-CH2-CH3.

Uses of Ethyl Acetate

Manufacturers and researchers in the industrial sector keep coming up with new ideas for using Ethyl Acetate. At present, this organic compound is used as:
  • Solvent:
    Paints, Varnishes, and Adhesives: Ethyl acetate acts as a powerful solvent for paints, varnishes, lacquers, and adhesives. It helps dissolve resins, oils, and other components, allowing for smooth application and proper film formation.
    Nail Polish Remover: Due to its excellent dissolving properties and relatively fast evaporation rate, ethyl acetate is a common ingredient in nail polish removers.
    Printing Inks: It's used as a solvent in some printing inks, helping the ink adhere to various surfaces and dry efficiently.
    Decaffeination (Limited Use): Historically, ethyl acetate was used in some decaffeination processes to remove caffeine from coffee beans. However, due to potential health concerns with residual ethyl acetate, alternative methods are becoming more prevalent.
  • Coatings and Surface Cleaning:
    Electronics Industry: Ethyl acetate finds use in cleaning circuit boards and other electronic components due to its ability to remove contaminants without damaging delicate parts.
    Leather and Textile Processing: It's used in some leather and textile cleaning and finishing processes to remove oils and residues.
  • Chemical Synthesis: Intermediate in Chemical Reactions: Ethyl acetate acts as a starting material or intermediate in the production of various other chemicals, such as cellulose acetate (used in textiles) and acetic anhydride (used in paints and pharmaceuticals).
  • Other Industrial Applications: Artificial Silk Production: Historically, ethyl acetate was used in the production of artificial silk (cellulose acetate).
    Fuel Additives: In some cases, ethyl acetate can be used as an additive in certain fuels.
    Laboratory Applications: Ethyl acetate finds use in various laboratory procedures as a solvent and extraction agent.
