What is Butyl Acetate?

Butyl acetate is a carboxylate synthetic scent, also referred to as butyl acetate, an anemic transparent liquid with a strong fruity fragrance, can be openly miscible with ethanol as well as ether, soluble in the majority of organic solvents, slightly soluble in water, The solubility in water is 0.05 g. Its vapor has a weak anesthetic impact, as well as the allowable focus airborne is 0.2 g/l. This item has a solid fruity aroma, and also after dilution, it has a pleasant pineapple as well as banana-like aroma, as well as the determination is exceptionally inadequate. Happens normally in several vegetables, fruits and also berries. Butyl acetate is seldom made use of in daily chemical flavors, as well as is primarily utilized in food taste solutions.
Butyl acetate has 4 isomers. That is, n-butyl acetate, isobutyl acetate, sec-butyl acetate, tert-butyl acetate, they all exist in nature. The more important of them are n-butyl acetate and isobutyl acetate. Butyl acetate is an anemic transparent fluid. Has a fruity fragrance. Spicy and afterwards wonderful. volatile. flammable. It occurs naturally in apples, bananas, cherries, grapes, peaches, plums, pears, tomatoes as well as chocolate beans.

Butyl Acetate Uses

  1. Butyl acetate is generally taken advantage of in nitrocellulose varnishes, as a solvent in the handling of artificial natural leather, materials as well as plastics, as well as also in the fragrance market.
  2. Butyl acetate is a flavor that is enabled to be made use of based on GB 2760-96. As a flavor, it is extensively used in the prep job of banana, pear, pineapple, apricot, peach, strawberry, berry along with different other flavors. It can furthermore be utilized as a solvent for all-natural rubber and also synthetic resins.
  3. Butyl acetate is sometimes taken advantage of in fruity flavors, mainly as a result of its good diffusivity, which is preferable for use as leading aromas, yet the dosage should be bit, so as not to affect the result as a result of its stand alone. It can be commonly used in food flavors such as apricot, banana, peach, raw pear, pineapple, raspberry, strawberry, etc.
  4. Butyl acetate is even utilized in collodion, nitrocellulose, varnish, synthetic leather, medication, plastics in addition to flavor industries. It is an exceptional natural solvent that can liquify rosin, polyvinyl acetate, polyacrylate, polyvinyl chloride, chlorine Chemical rubber, Eucommia gum, polymethyl methacrylate, and so on.

Purification of Butyl Acetate

It is commonly made use of as solvent as well as removal agent in analysis. Butyl acetate typically has ethanol, acetic acid and water.
Filtration approach of butyl acetate
( 1) Vacuum purification method
Butyl acetate is washed with an equal volume of sodium carbonate remedy (5%), dried by adding anhydrous calcium chloride, and afterwards distilled. When drying demands are stringent, phosphorus pentoxide can be contributed to completely dry, filter, as well as distilled without dampness. It can also be drawn out and also cleaned two times with saturated sodium bicarbonate option, then dried out with anhydrous magnesium sulfate and after that distilled. The purification device is displayed in Number 1.


Figure 1 Butyl acetate vacuum distillation tool
1– water bathroom; 2– 1000ml Clayson flask; 3– capillary; 4– thermometer; 0 ~ 100 ° C; 5– spherical condenser; 6– receptor; 7– heating ring; Attach to air pump;
a, b– two-way piston; c– three-way piston
Put 500ml of cleaned as well as dried butyl acetate in the flask, link the distillation tool, open up the pistons a, b, c, start the vacuum pump to remove the air in the system, when the pressure in the system reaches 7998Pa, turn on the constant temperature level water bathroom power supply, and also control the temperature level At 60-70 ° C, the purification speed is 1-2 drops/s. After 50-60ml is vaporized, shut the piston a, link the piston c to the atmosphere, eliminate the getting container, throw out the very first distillate, and install it. As well as switch on c, connect the getting bottle to the pump, continue the distillation, stop the purification when 300-350ml of extract is evaporated, and the middle fraction is the purified item. Note that the water bathroom temperature need to depend upon the degree of vacuum and ought to be based on the purification speed.
( 2) Healing of butyl acetate
Usage butyl peracetate waste liquid, clean it with water numerous times in a separatory funnel, then wash it with weaken salt thiosulfate option several times to make it discolor, then wash it with water a number of times, and then purify it by distillation according to (1 ).

Production Method of Butyl Acetate

It is obtained from the esterification of acetic acid and n-butanol in the presence of sulfuric acid. Put butanol, acetic acid and sulfuric acid into the esterification kettle in proportion, perform esterification at 120°C, and undergo reflux dehydration. The acid value during esterification is controlled to be below 0.5. The crude ester obtained is neutralized and then enters the distillation kettle. After distillation, Condensation, separation, reflux dehydration, recovery of alcohol ester, and finally distillation below 126°C to obtain the product. The production process includes continuous method and intermittent method, depending on the production scale. Raw material consumption quota: acetic acid (98%) 540kg/t, n-butanol 650kg/t. In recent years, there have been an increasing number of scientific research reports on the development and application of solid acids, heteropolyacids, etc. to replace sulfuric acid catalysts to reduce equipment corrosion, but there have been no reports of successful use in industrial production.
