  • Ethyl acetate is the organic compound with the formula CH3COOCH2CH3.
  • It is also called as ethyl ethanoate, commonly abbreviated EtOAc or EA.
  • This colorless liquid has a characteristic, not unpleasant smell (similar to pear drops) like certain glues or nail polish removers, in which it is used.
  • Ethyl acetate is the ester from ethanol and acetic acid; it is manufactured on a large scale for use as a solvent.
  • Ethyl acetate is a moderately polar solvent that has the advantages of being volatile, relatively non-toxic, and non-hygroscopic.
  • Ethyl acetate can dissolve up to 3% water and has a solubility of 8% in water at room temperature. At elevated temperature its solubility in water is higher. It is unstable in the presence of strong aqueous bases and acids.
  • Ethyl acetate is synthesized via the Fischer esterification reaction from ethanol and acetic acid, typically in the presence of an acid catalyst such as concentrated sulfuric acid.
  • It can also be prepared through Tishchenko reaction, by combining two equivalents of acetaldehyde in the presence of an alkoxide base as catalyst. This way is a commercial method of producing ethyl acetate.
  • Industrially, ethyl acetate can be produced by the catalytic dehydrogenation of ethanol.
  • The main method to manufacture ethyl acetate involves the esterification of ethanol with acetic acid although some is produced by the catalytic condensation of acetaldehyde with alkoxides.
  • Solutia obtains ethyl acetate as a coproduct in production of polyvinyl alcohol, which the company uses captively in the manufacture of polyvinyl butyral.
  • Wyoming bentonite, exchanged with cations of high charge density, is an efficient and selective catalyst for the production of ethyl acetate.
  • Ethyl acetate is primarily used as a solvent. It is commonly used to dissolve the pigments for nail varnishes, and is responsible for the solvent-effect of some nail varnish remover.
  • Industrially it is used to decaffeinate coffee beans and tea leaves. It is also used in paints as an activator or hardener.
  • Ethylacetate is rarely selected as a reaction solvent because it is prone to hydrolysis.
  • In the field of entomology, ethyl acetate is an effective poison for use in insect collecting and study.
    Ethyl acetate exports were increasing at a rate even higher than the domestic demand decline, 6.5 percent. The market, however, was balanced by a decline in imported material, amounting to -6.8 percent annually.
