Ethyl acetate is the ester of ethanol and acetic acid. it is manufactured on a large scale for use as a solvent.Uses:Ethyl Acetate
is used primarily as a solvent and diluent, being favored because of its low cost, low toxicity, and agreeable odor. For example, it is commonly used to clean circuit boards and in some nail varnish removers (acetone and acetonitrile are also used). Coffee beans and tea leaves are decaffeinated with this solvent.It is also used in paints as an activator or hardener. Ethyl acetate is present in confectionery, perfumes and fruits. In perfumes, it evaporates quickly, leaving only the scent of the perfume on the skin.Laboratory Uses:
- In the laboratory, mixtures containing ethyl acetate are commonly used in column chromatography and extractions.
- Ethyl acetate is rarely selected as a reaction solvent because it is prone to hydrolysis and transesterification
