tert-Butyl acetate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production


tert-Butyl acetate, or t-butyl acetate, is a colourless flammable liquid with a camphor- or blueberry-like smell. It is used as a solvent in the production of lacquers, enamels, inks, adhesives, thinners, and industrial cleaners. It is also used as an additive to improve the anti-knock properties of motor fuels. tert-Butyl acetate has three isomers: n-butyl acetate, isobutyl acetate, and sec-butyl acetate.

Chemical Properties

Clear, colorless liquid


Tert-butyl Acetate is a common solvent used in the production of various industrial cleansers, thinners and adhesives and is also known as a VOC.


As gasoline additive (Wheeler et al.).

General Description

Colorless liquid with a mild odor. Floats on water. Produces irritating vapor.

Air & Water Reactions

Highly flammable. Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

tert-Butyl acetate 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. tert-Butyl acetate is incompatible with the following: Nitrates; strong oxidizers, alkalis & acids .

Health Hazard

INHALATION: Irritation of throat. EYES: Irritation.

Purification Methods

Wash the ester with 5% Na2CO3 solution, then saturated aqueous CaCl2, dry with CaSO4 and distil it. [McClosky et al. Org Synth Coll Vol IV 263 1963, Mangia et al. Org Prep Proc Int 18 13 1986, Beilstein 2 IV 151.]
