Butyl propionate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties


General Description

A water-white liquid with an apple-like odor. Less dense than water. Flash point 90°F. May irritate skin and eyes. Used to make perfumes and flavorings.

Air & Water Reactions

Highly flammable. Very slightly soluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

BUTYL PROPIONATE is an ester. 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.

Health Hazard

Contact will cause eye and skin irritation. Vapor exposure may cause eye and respiratory tract irritation.

Fire Hazard

Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Irritating and toxic gases, such as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, may be produced in fire.
