2-Butoxyethyl acetate Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

colourless to pale yellow liquid with a mild odour

Uses

High-boiling solvent for nitrocellulose lacquers, epoxy resins, multicolor lacquers; filmcoalescing aid for polyvinyl acetate latex.

Uses

2-n-Butoxyethyl acetate is used as a solvent for nitrocellulose lacquers, enamels, coating additives, epoxy resins, and varnishes. It is a film coalescing aid for polyvinyl acetate latex. Further, it stimulates the release of prostaglandin E(2), an arachidonic acid metabolite, in human epidermal keratinocytes. In addition to this, it serves as an ingredient in ink removers and spot removers.

Uses

2-Butoxyethyl Acetate is used in preparation of anti-aging coating with wear resistance, waterproof and acid and alkali resistance.

General Description

Colorless liquid with a weak fruity odor. Floats and mixes slowly with water.

Air & Water Reactions

Water soluble.

Reactivity Profile

2-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 Hazard

Inhalation of concentrated vapor may cause headache, nausea, dizziness. Liquid causes irritation of eyes and mild irritation of skin. Ingestion produces same symptoms as inhalation.

Flammability and Explosibility

Nonflammable

Safety Profile

Moderately 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 Methods

Shake 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.]
