2-Butoxyethyl acetate Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiescolourless to pale yellow liquid with a mild odour
  • UsesHigh-boiling solvent for nitrocellulose lacquers, epoxy resins, multicolor lacquers; filmcoalescing aid for polyvinyl acetate latex.
  • General DescriptionColorless liquid with a weak fruity odor. Floats and mixes slowly with water.
  • Air & Water ReactionsWater soluble.
  • Reactivity Profile2-Butoxyethyl acetate is incompatible with the following: Oxidizers . 2-Butoxyethyl acetate is an ether-alcohol derivative. The ether being relatively unreactive. Flammable and/or toxic gases are generated by the combination of alcohols with alkali metals, nitrides, and strong reducing agents. They react with oxoacids and carboxylic acids to form esters plus water. Oxidizing agents convert alcohols to aldehydes or ketones. Alcohols exhibit both weak acid and weak base behavior. They may initiate the polymerization of isocyanates and epoxides.
  • Health HazardInhalation of concentrated vapor may cause headache, nausea, dizziness. Liquid causes irritation of eyes and mild irritation of skin. Ingestion produces same symptoms as inhalation.
  • Safety ProfileModerately toxic by ingestion and skin contact. Mild skin irritant. Flammable when exposed to heat, flame, or oxidizers. To fight fire, use alcohol foam. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. See also ESTERS.
  • Purification MethodsShake the ester with anhydrous Na2CO3, filter and distil it in a vacuum. Redistillation can then be carried out at atmospheric pressure. [Dunbar & Bolstad J Org Chem 21 1041 1956, Beilstein 2 IV 215.]
