Brief Overview                 

 

Methyl acetate (CH3COOCH3), also called acetic acid methyl ester or methyl ethanoate, belongs to the ester group. It is a colorless and flammable liquid with a characteristic glue and nail polish remover odour. At room temperature, methyl acetate has a solubility of 25% in water. Its solubility gets higher when the temperature increases. Its fast-evaporating property, methyl acetate is useful in a wide range of applications.

 

Manufacturing Process

 

There are various manufacturing methods for methyl acetate; fischer esterification, reaction of acid anhydrides with alcohols, reaction of acid anhydrides with alcohols or trans-esterification. Among those methods, reactive distillation is most common and famous route.

Reactive distillation is a continuous system where the separation and reaction are operated in the distillation column. Reaction happens in the vessel and separation takes place in the column. There are several steps, involving feasibility analysis, conceptual design, equipment selection and design, operability and control studies.



Paint Industry

It is used as a solvent in the manufacturing of fast drying paints for wood finishing, automobile, industrial application, marine application, etc. as it evaporates very fast. It is also used as a solvent in surface cleaner because it dry fast and hydrophobic in nature.

 

Adhesive Industry

Methyl acetate is used in manufacturing of fast sticking adhesives, which is manufactured by mixing rubber and resin in methyl acetate.

 

Other Applications

Methyl acetate is used in manufacturing of cosmetics and personal care products like nail polish, nail polish remover, perfumes etc.
