Brief Overview

 

Ethyl acetate, also known as ethyl ethanoate, is one of the most widely used organic compounds with the chemical formula CH3COOCH2CH3. Ethyl acetate is a colourless liquid at room temperature with a characteristic sweet smell.

 

Manufacturing Process

 

Ethyl acetate is synthesized in industry mainly via the Fischer esterification reaction of ethanol and acetic acid. This mixture converts to the ester in about 65% yield at room temperature:

CH3CH2OH + CH3COOH  CH3COOCH2CH3 + H2O

The reaction can be accelerated by acid catalysis and the equilibrium can be shifted to the right by removal of water.

It can also be prepared using the Tishchenko reaction, by combining two equivalents of acetaldehyde in the presence of an alkoxide catalyst:

   2 CH3CHO  CH3COOCH2CH3

 



Solvent

Ethyl Acetate is a solvent and diluent because of its low cost, toxicity and agreeable odour. It is commonly used in a wide range of applications, including printing, inks, varnishes and car care chemicals and in the production of enamels, plastics and rubber.

 

Paint and Coating

It is used in variety of paint and coating formulations such as epoxies, urethanes, acrylics and vinyls for applications in wood furniture and fixtures, agricultural, construction and mining equipment, auto refinishing, marine, etc.

 

Other Applications

It also plays a role in manufacturing printing inks, in the packaging industry and in the production of adhesives. In perfumes, it evaporates quickly, leaving only the scent of perfume on the skin.
