Description

General description

Isopropyl acetate is an isopropyl ester of acetic acid. It participates in the mesoporous Al-MCM-41 (Si/Al = 55 and 104) and Al, Zn-MCM-41 (Si/(Al+Zn) = 52) molecular sieves catalyzed alkylation of m-cresol. It is widely used for the incorporation of aroma to various cosmetics and food products. Vapor-liquid equilibria for its binary mixture with CO2 at higher pressures has been evaluated. It is a colorless, flammable liquid, having a pleasant fruity type of odor.

Application

Isopropyl acetate may be employed as model oxygenate compound to evaluate the catalytic efficiency of La0.8Sr0.2MnO3+x perovskite catalyst for the oxidation of various oxy-derivative compounds. It may be used as extracting reagent for the N,N-dimethyl-2-[5-(cyanomethyl)-1H-indol-3-yl]ethylamine.

Isopropyl acetate may be used as an analytical standard for the determination of the analyte in water samples and organic solvent mixtures by various gas chromatography (GC) techniques.
