In general, exempt solvents, such as acetone, methyl acetate
, and PCFTF, are likely to be the only compounds that can meet the 3% limit.
Methanol, ethanol, methyl acetate
and ethyl acetate (Merck, Germany) were used as solvents.
Methanol (MeOH) was selected as solvent because of low chain transfer constant to solvent and the ease of separation of the methyl acetate
produced as byproduct.
Industrial applications of the technology include esterification systems such as methyl acetate
(Agreda and Partin, 1984) and etherification systems such as MTBE (Smith, 1994), ETBE (Thiel et al.
A Brussels review has now concluded that for methyl acetate
"there is a need for specific measures to limit the risks" because of potential respiratory irritation within "flooring works and (the) building trade".
Their general topics include high pressure NMR cells, the use of high pressure infrared spectroscopy to study catalytic mechanisms, processing spectroscopic data, carbonylation of methanol to acetic acid and methyl acetate
to acetic anhydride, rhodium catalyzed hydroformylation, alkene/CO copolymerization, the use of spectroscopy in metallocene-based polymerization catalysis, and hydrogenation.
The organic acids were eluted from the silica gel with methyl acetate
1] due to methyl acetate
by-products are sometimes discernable.
can be used in non-acetone nail polish removers as it is a good solvent for nail polish lacquers.
The EPA's classification system is based on smog control and, as such, leaves out many chemicals in paints, such as acetone and methyl acetate
, that may be dangerous to inhale but that do not fit the agency's VOC definition.
t-Butyl acetate is a natural extension of Celanese's growing solvent line, which includes VOC exempt methyl acetate
, explains Raff.
(CAS 79-20-9) Market Research Report 2012 presents comprehensive data on methyl acetate
markets globally and regionally (Europe, Asia, North America etc.
