Ethyl Acetate

CAS #141-78-6



Ethyl acetate is the organic compound formed by acetic acid and ethanol. It is widely used as a solvent in chemical reactions or preparations. This is the reason why there are ethyl acetate manufacturers on a large scale. Elchemy, is one of the well-known ethyl acetate suppliers in USA that offers the best chemicals at reasonable prices.

Uses & Applications

Ethyl acetate is used in various industrial applications such as in paints as a hardener, paint and coating additives, degreasing solvents, active agents, processing aids and plasticisers. 

Ethyl Acetate can be used in printing and pharmaceuticals and in coating formulations for wood furniture, agricultural, construction equipment, mining equipment and marine uses.

Ethyl Acetate used in column chromatography and extractions.

Ethyl acetate is an ester in wine and contributes to the decaffeination of coffee beans and tea leaves.

Ethyl Acetate also has an application in air care products and perfumes, as it evaporates quickly leaving only the scent to remain.

As a high purity solvent, Ethylene Bis stearamide is used in cleaning electric circuit boards and as a nail polish remover.

Market Driving Factors

The ethyl acetate market is projected to register a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period 2022-2027. The key market driven factors are increased demand from flexible packaging industries and the increased production of synthetic rubbers.

Is ethyl acetate hazardous to human?


Ethyl acetate poses a significant threat to human health if mishandled. It should be stored and handled appropriately to prevent health risks. Wearing safety glasses, a glove, and a vapour respirator is therefore recommended as a safety precaution when handling ethyl acetate. For more data, if it's not too much trouble, demand us for Material Wellbeing Information Sheet

Why is ethyl acetate used in extractions?


Because of their chemical and biological properties, like medial polarity and minimal cell toxicity, they are frequently used in extraction processes. Ethyl acetate can extract both polar and nonpolar compounds thanks to its biphase actions; Within the limited space, it is properly separated.

Does ethyl acetate mix with water?


Because it is so insoluble in water, ethyl acetate does not mix with water. Ethyl acetate, also called ethyl ethanoate, is quickly broken down into ethanol and acetic acid by hydrolysis. It is a solvent or a product that dilutes with water in cleaning products.

Why is ethyl acetate a good solvent?


Ethyl acetate is a potent solvent that works well for effective separation in confined spaces. The manufacturers of ethyl acetate provide this solvent for use in cleaning mixtures, paints, lacquers, perfumes, and vanishes. Additionally, this solvent is used in the laboratory for decaffeinating coffee beans; It is a common solvent for thin-layer chromatography and column chromatography.
