Ethyl acetate

What is Ethyl acetate?

Ethyl acetate is an organic ester compound with the molecular formula C4H8O2. It is commonly used as a solvent for cleaning, removing paint and coatings. Ethyl acetate is a colorless liquid with a distinctive fruity odor that is commonly known in adhesives and lacquers. This product is very flammable and has a flash point temperature of -4 degrees Celsius and a degree of flammability of 3 degrees. Highly soluble in all common organic solvents (alcohols, ketones, glycols, esters), but sparingly soluble in water.

Ethyl acetate is relatively volatile at room temperature and has a boiling point of 77 ° C (171 ° F). Due to this property, the ethyl acetate in a sample can be removed by heating in a hot water bath and compressed air. This chemical substance is also sold in the market under the names of acetic acid, ethyl ester, acetic ether, stoxy ethane, ethyl acetate, ethyl ethanoate.
