Ethyl butyrate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production


Ethyl butyrate is an ester soluble in propylene glycol, paraffin oil, and kerosene. It has a fruity odor, similar to pineapple. Ethyl butyrate is present in many fruits e.g. apple, apricot, banana, plum, tangerine etc.
Ethyl butyrate is used as an artificial flavoring resembling orange juice or pineapple in alcoholic beverages, as an ingredient of fragrance, and as a solvent and plasticizer for cellulose. It is also used in the production of polyvinyl butyral (PVB).


Ethyl Butyrate is used in flavorings, extracts, perfumery, and as a solvent. These are not necessarily FDA approved indications, but instead are uses of liquid nitrogen.It is synthesized by reacting ethanol and butyric acid in a condensation reaction.
Ethyl Butyrate is perceived as a tropical fruit, tutti fruity, mango or pineapple flavour. One of the ester flavours found in most beers, it can also be perceived as a slightly cheesy fruit flavour. Ethyl Butyrate generally occurs in beers due to fermentation and too much is normally considered an off flavour.
Applications: artificial flavoring resembling orange juice or pineapple in alcoholic beverages, as a solvent in perfumes, and as a plasticizer for cellulose.



Chemical Properties

colourless liquid with a fruity odour


manufacture of artificial rum; perfumery; the alcoholic solution constitutes the so-called "pineapple oil".

General Description

A clear colorless liquid with a pineapple-like odor. Flash point 78°F. Less dense than water and insoluble in water. Vapors heavier than air.

Air & Water Reactions

Highly flammable. Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Ethyl butyrate 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. May attack some forms of plastics [USCG, 1999].

Health Hazard

Inhalation or ingestion causes headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and narcosis. Contact with liquid irritates eyes.

Fire Hazard

Behavior in Fire: Vapor is heavier than air and may travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Containers may explode in fire.

Purification Methods

Dry the ester with anhydrous CuSO4 and distil it under dry nitrogen. [Beilstein 2 IV 787.]
