Hazard Information

General Description
A clear colorless liquid with a pineapple-like odor. Flash point 78°F. Less dense than water and insoluble in water. Vapors heavier than air.
Reactivity Profile
ETHYL BUTYRATE(105-54-4) is an ester. Esters react with acids to liberate heat along with alcohols and acids. Strong oxidizing acids may cause a vigorous reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products. Heat is also generated by the interaction of esters with caustic solutions. Flammable hydrogen is generated by mixing esters with alkali metals and hydrides. May attack some forms of plastics [USCG, 1999].
Air & Water Reactions
Highly flammable. Insoluble in water.
Hazard
Irritant to eyes and mucous membranes, narcotic in high concentration. Flammable, dangerous fire risk.
Health Hazard
Inhalation or ingestion causes headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and narcosis. Contact with liquid irritates eyes.
Potential Exposure
Ethyl butyrate, and aldehyde, is used in flavorings, extracts, perfumery, and as a solvent.
Fire Hazard
Behavior in Fire: Vapor is heavier than air and may travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Containers may explode in fire.
First aid
If this chemical gets into the eyes, remove any contact lenses at once and irrigate immediately for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical contacts the skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash immediately with soap and water. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical has been inhaled, remove from exposure, begin rescue breathing (using universal precautions, including resuscitation mask) if breathing has stopped and CPR if heart action has stopped. Transfer promptly to a medical facility. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. Give large quantities of water and induce vomiting. Do not make an unconscious person vomit.
Shipping
UN1180; UN1178 Ethyl butyrate, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3-Flammable liquid
Incompatibilities
Vapor explosive mixture with air. Ethers can act as bases. They form salts with strong acids and addition complexes with Lewis acids. The complex between diethyl ether and boron trifluoride is an example. Ethers may react violently with strong oxidizing agents. In other reactions, which typically involve the breaking of the carbon-oxygen bond, ethers are relatively inert. Incompatible with alkaline materials, strong acids, oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from strong bases and heat
Waste Disposal
Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed

Questions And Answer

Description
Ethyl butyrate is an ester soluble in propylene glycol, paraffin oil, and kerosene. It has a fruity odor, similar to pineapple. Ethyl butyrate is present in many fruits e.g. apple, apricot, banana, plum, tangerine etc.
Ethyl butyrate is used as an artificial flavoring resembling orange juice or pineapple in alcoholic beverages, as an ingredient of fragrance, and as a solvent and plasticizer for cellulose. It is also used in the production of polyvinyl butyral (PVB).
Uses
Ethyl Butyrate is used in flavorings, extracts, perfumery, and as a solvent. These are not necessarily FDA approved indications, but instead are uses of liquid nitrogen.It is synthesized by reacting ethanol and butyric acid in a condensation reaction.
Ethyl Butyrate is perceived as a tropical fruit, tutti fruity, mango or pineapple flavour. One of the ester flavours found in most beers, it can also be perceived as a slightly cheesy fruit flavour. Ethyl Butyrate generally occurs in beers due to fermentation and too much is normally considered an off flavour.
Applications: artificial flavoring resembling orange juice or pineapple in alcoholic beverages, as a solvent in perfumes, and as a plasticizer for cellulose.
