Ethyl acetate, ethylaetate, acetic ether or ethyl ethanoate is the ester of ethanol and acetic acid, a colorless liquid with a characteristic sweet odor. It is mainly used as a solvent and thinner, being preferred for its low toxicity and pleasant odor. It is commonly used to clean circuit boards and in some nail polish removers. Coffee beans and tea leaves are decaffeinated with this solvent. It is also used in paints as an activator or hardener. Ethyl acetate is present in sweets, perfumes and fruit. In perfumes it evaporates quickly, leaving the smell of perfume on the skin.
Ethyl acetate is an asphyxiant for use in collecting and studying insects. In a catch bottle loaded with ethyl acetate, the vapors will quickly kill the collected insect without destroying it. Because it is non-hygroscopic, ethyl acetate also keeps the insect soft enough to allow for proper mounting suitable for harvesting. However, ethyl acetate is thought to potentially damage insect DNA, making samples processed in this way less than ideal for subsequent DNA sequencing.
Overexposure to ethyl acetate can cause irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, or the conjunctiva and mucous membranes of the respiratory tract.
