About Butyl Acetate

It is found in many types of fruit, where along with other chemicals, it imparts characteristic flavors and has a sweet smell of banana or apple. Butyl acetate is commonly manufactured by the Fischer esterification of butanol and acetic acid with the presence of catalytic sulfuric acid under reflux conditions.

Butyl acetate is used primarily in coatings. It is a good solvent with low volatility. It is also used in photographic film, nail polish removers, lacquers, perfumes, oils, and resins. Butyl acetate is an active solvent for film-formers such as cellulose acetate butyrate, nitrocellulose, polyesters, epoxies, alkyds, vinyl copolymers, and acrylic resins.
