Ethyl Acetate  –  an ester of  acetic acid  and ethyl alcohol, is a colorless volatile liquid with a pleasant fruity odor. Wide range of use of ethyl acetate related to its specific properties – high solubility and volatility. It has little toxicity compared to other solvents. For the technical level of production of ethyl acetate by esterification it meets modern world level. All process steps are carried out by continuous scheme, and the mass fraction of a substance reaches 99.9%.
