N-butyl acetate is a chemical compound with a molecular formula of C6H12O2, CAS: 123-86-4. It is commonly used as a solvent in the production of lacquers, inks and adhesives. This product is a colourless liquid that has a fruity odour. This product is highly flammable with a flash point of 24° C. It is highly miscible with all common organic solvents (alcohols, ketones, glycols, esters) but has only slight miscibility in water.
The most common method for creating n-butyl acetate is via the esterification of a butanol isomer and acetic acid which are heated in the presence of a strong acid.
The most common use of normal butyl acetate is as a solvent in the production of lacquers and paints. Its other major use is in the creation of adhesives and hardened coatings. N-butyl acetate is also used in the pharmaceutical industry as a solvent or an extraction agent. Its minor uses include cosmetic products, fragrance solvent in perfumes, as an anti-corrosive agent, in cleaning and car care products. It is also used in the synthetic fruit flouring industry.
