Safety Information
Acetyl tributyl citrate Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiesclear colorless liquid
  • Chemical PropertiesAcetyltributyl citrate is a clear, odorless, practically colorless, oily liquid.
  • Chemical PropertiesTributyl acetylcitrate has a very faint, sweet, herbaceous odor. At high levels (e.g., 1000 ppm emulsion in water), it has a mild, fruity, nondescript flavor.
  • Chemical PropertiesAcetyl tributyl citrate (ATBC) is a colorless, odorless liquid. Its water solubility is less than 0.002 g/100 mL, but it is soluble in organic solvents.
  • UsesLabelled Tributyl O-Acetylcitrate (T772950). Topical pharmaceutical formulation anesthetic surfactant ester.
  • Usesplasticizer flavoring agent
  • DefinitionAqueous-based pharmaceutical coat- ings.
  • PreparationFrom citric acid via the tributyl ester followed by acetylation.
  • Production MethodsAcetyltributyl citrate is prepared by the esterification of citric acid with butanol followed by acylation with acetic anhydride.
  • Pharmaceutical ApplicationsAcetyltributyl citrate is used to plasticize polymers in formulated pharmaceutical coatings, including capsules, tablets, beads, and granules for taste masking, immediate release, sustained-release and enteric formulations.
  • Safety ProfileWhen heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. ADD750
  • Safetyand films intended for direct food contact. It is also used in selfadhesive thin films used for topical delivery systems. It is generally regarded as a relatively nontoxic and nonirritating material. However, ingestion of large quantities may be harmful.
    LD50 (cat, oral): >50 mL/kg
    LD50 (mouse, IP): >4 g/kg
    LD50 (rat, oral): >31.5 g/kg
  • CarcinogenicityThe chronic toxicity of ATBC was evaluated in rats fed diets containing 200, 2000, or 20,000 ppm of ATBC for 2 years. There were no treatment- related lesions in any organs examined.
  • storageAcetyltributyl citrate should be stored in a well-closed container in a cool, dry location at temperatures not exceeding 38℃. When stored in accordance with these conditions, acetyltributyl citrate is a stable product.
  • IncompatibilitiesAcetyltributyl citrate is incompatible with strong alkalis and oxidizing materials.
  • Regulatory StatusIncluded in FDA Inactive Ingredients Database (oral capsules and tablets). Included in nonparenteral medicines licensed in the UK. Approved in the USA for direct food contact in food films.
