    For chemical-technical applications.

    Application

    Ethyl acetate or acetic acid ethyl ester or acetic ester, is formed during the esterification of acetic acid and ethanol. Ethyl acetate is a colorless liquid with a characteristic fruity-sweet odor. In the chemical industry, ethyl acetate is mainly used as a solvent. Most users will be familiar with it as a cosmetic product due to its high dissolving power: As a nail polish remover. 

    In this sense, ethyl acetate is one of the most versatile solvents and also offers very good performance in extraction processes. For example, ethyl acetate is used for decaffeinating coffee or extracting natural flavors used for flavoring beverages. In addition, ethyl acetate is used in the production of pharmaceutical extractions and is used in the manufacture of adhesives in all areas.

    In electrical engineering, it can be used as an electrolyte - in the manufacture of electricity storage devices - because it enables stable processes even at low temperatures. However, this has the disadvantage of low energy density.

    Precautions

    Wash hands and other exposed body parts with mild soap and water before eating, drinking or smoking and when leaving the workplace.  Provide process area with good ventilation to prevent formation of vapors. 

    Hazard statements

    H225 - Highly flammable liquid and vapor.
    H319 - Causes severe eye irritation.
    H336 - May cause drowsiness and dizziness.

    More Information

    Ethyl acetate is present in very small amounts in some alcoholic beverages. For example in rum or in wine. In wine, however, this is naturally perceived as a disadvantage. In this case, it is referred to as a solvent tint. This flavor anomaly occurs due to rot in the pressed grapes or because the grape harvest was exposed to a hailstorm. 

    Storage

    Store only in the original container in a cool, well-ventilated place. Keep container closed when not in use. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight.
