Furfuryl acetate Usage And Synthesis
  • DescriptionFurfuryl acetate is the ester formed by the esterification between furfuryl alcohol and acetate. It can be used as a food spices and flavoring ingredient. It can also be used as the intermediate of dye, resin and spices. It is found in alcoholic beverage. Furfuryl acetate is present in wheat bread, crisp bread, roasted onion, pork liver, beer, rum, cocoa and coffee.

  • Chemical PropertiesFurfuryl acetate has a ethereal foral fruity odor.
  • Chemical PropertiesColorless to light yellow liqui
  • OccurrenceReported found in roasted almonds, beer, white bread, cocoa, coffee, roasted flberts, roasted onion, roasted peanuts, cooked pork liver, wheaten and crispbread, oats, rum, beer, licorice, dried bonito, sukiyaki and Bourbon vanilla
  • UsesFlavor.
  • General DescriptionColorless to clear yellow or orange liquid with a pungent odor.
  • Air & Water ReactionsSlightly water soluble.
  • Reactivity ProfileFurfuryl acetate 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. Furfuryl acetate reacts with strong oxidizing agents, strong acids, strong bases and strong reducing agents. Furfuryl acetate reacts violently with cyanoacetic acid, formic acid, mineral acids, nitric acid and (nitric acid + N204 + sulfuric acid).
  • Fire HazardFurfuryl acetate is combustible.
