     Information  @ a Glance 

  • n-Butyl acetate, also known as butyl ethanoate, is an organic compound commonly used as a solvent in the production of lacquers and other products.
  • Butyl acetate is found in many types of fruit, where along with other chemicals it imparts characteristic flavors.
  • Apples, especially of the Red Delicious variety, are flavored in part by this chemical.


  • A colourless flammable liquid with a fruity odour, butyl acetate is produced by the esterification of acetic acid using butanol in the presence of a catalyst such as sulphuric acid.
  • Esters can be prepared by the reaction of a carboxylic acid with an alcohol in the presence of a catalyst such as concentrated sulfuric acid, hydrogen chloride, p-toluenesulfonic acid, or the acid form of an ion exchange resin.


  • In recent years, the Butyl Acetate has seen rising demand for uses as an oxygenated solvent substitute for hazardous air pollutants , such as aromatics and ketones.
  • Long term demand may be threatened in Asia, as policies flavouring progressive reduction of volatile organic compounds into the atmosphere come into force.


  • It is also used as a synthetic fruit flavoring in foods such as candy, ice cream, cheeses, and baked goods.
  • Its main uses are in paint manufacturing, automobiles, glue in wood coatings, nail care, cosmetics and perfumes, extraction solvent for pharmaceuticals, cleaning fluids and for low-end applications like paint thinner.
