2-Methoxyethyl acetate Usage And Synthesis
Methoxyethyl acetate is a colorless liquid. Mild, ethereal odor.
Colorless liquid with a mild, ether-like odor. Experimentally determined detection and recognition odor threshold concentrations were 1.6 mg/m3 (330 ppbv) and 3.1 mg/m3 (640 ppbv), respectively (Hellman and Small, 1974).
Lacquer industry; textile printing; manufacture of photographic film, coatings, and adhesives
A clear colorless liquid with a pleasant odor. Flash point of 135°F. Denser than water and soluble in water. Vapors are heavier than air.
Air & Water Reactions
Flammable. Water soluble. Reacts slowly in water to form acetic acid and methyl alcohol; the reaction is not violent.
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.
Toxic by ingestion, inhalation, and skin absorption. Moderate fire risk. Toxic by skin absorption.
May cause irritation if splashed into eyes. Can be absorbed through the skin. Swallowing a large single dose or absorbing larged amount through skin could result in death. It is unlikely that air levels of the compound would be dangerous unless it is heated.
Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Irritating vapors and toxic gases, such as carbon monoxide, may be formed when involved in fire.
Moderately toxic by ingestion, intraperitoneal, and subcutaneous routes. hfddly toxic by inhalation and skin contact. Human systemic effects by inhalation: eye lachrymation, cough, and pulmonary changes. Experimental reproductive effects. Mutation data reported. An inhalation irritant in humans. An eye irritant. Flammable liquid when exposed to heat or flame; can react with oxidizing materials. A moderate explosion hazard. To fight fire, use CO2, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. See also GLYCOL ETHERS.
Methoxyethyl acetate is used as a solvent for resins, oils, greases and inks. It is also an ingredient of lacquers, paints and adhesives.
Chemical/Physical. Hydrolyzes in water forming methyl cellosolve and acetic acid. At an influent concentration of 1,024 mg/L, treatment with GAC resulted in an effluent concentration of 886 mg/L. The adsorbability of the carbon used was 28 mg/g carbon (Guisti et al., 1974).
UN1189 Ethylene glycol monomethyl ether acetate, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3-Flammable liquid.
Shake the methoxy-ethane with anhydrous Na2CO3, filter and distil it in a vacuum. Redistillation can be then be carried out at atmospheric pressure. [Dunbar & Bolstad J Org Chem 21 1041 1956, Beilstein 2 IV 214.]
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. Beware of possible presence of peroxides in which case open burning may be used
