Triethyl citrate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Description

Triethyl citrate is the triester of citric acid and ethyl alcohol.
Triethyl citrate is used as a flavoring agent in foods, as a high boiling solvent and plasticizer for vinyl resins and cellulose acetates, as a plasticizer in the pharmaceutical industry for coating. Triethyl citrate is used as a natural active ingredient and flavor component with excellent deodorizing and skin care properties in cosmetic and personal care products. Triethyl citrate is also used as a plasticizer and humectant for cigarette filters. Furthermore, triethyl citrate is used s a food additive for stabilizing foams, specifically as a whipping enhancer for organic egg whites during processing.

Chemical Properties

Colorless, mobile liquid; bitter taste. Solubility in water 6.5 g/100 cc; solubility in oil 0.8 g/100 cc. Combustible.

Chemical Properties

Triethyl citrate is a clear, viscous, odorless, and practically colorless, hygroscopic liquid.

Uses

Pharmaceutic aid (plasticizer).

Uses

Triethyl Citrate is a sequestrant that is an oily liquid, slightly solu- ble in water. it is found in lemon drinks.

Production Methods

Triethyl citrate is prepared by the esterification of citric acid and ethanol in the presence of a catalyst.

Pharmaceutical Applications

Triethyl citrate and the related esters acetyltriethyl citrate, tributyl citrate, and acetyltributyl citrate are used to plasticize polymers in formulated pharmaceutical coatings. The coating applications include capsules, tablets, beads, and granules for taste masking, immediate release, sustained-release, and enteric formulations.
Triethyl citrate is also used as a direct food additive for flavoring, for solvency, and as a surface active agent.

Safety Profile

Moderately toxic by intraperitoneal route. Mildly toxic by ingestion and inhalation. Combustible liquid when exposed to heat or flame. To fight fire, use dry chemical, CO2. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. See also ESTERS and CITRIC ACID.

Safety

Triethyl citrate is used in oral pharmaceutical formulations and as a direct food additive. It is generally regarded as a nontoxic and nonirritant material. However, ingestion of large quantities may be harmful.
LD50 (mouse, IP): 1.75 g/kg
LD50 (rat, IP): 4 g/kg
LD50 (rat, oral): 5.9 g/kg
LD50 (rat, SC): 6.6 g/kg

storage

Triethyl citrate should be stored in a closed container in a cool, dry location. When stored in accordance with these conditions, triethyl citrate is a stable product.

Incompatibilities

Triethyl citrate is incompatible with strong alkalis and oxidizing materials.

Regulatory Status

GRAS listed. Accepted for use as a food additive in Europe. Included in the FDA Inactive Ingredients Database (oral capsules and tablets). Included in the Canadian List of Acceptable Nonmedicinal Ingredients.
