Containers should be bonded and grounded for transfers to avoid static sparks. For massive fire, use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles; if this is impossible, withdraw from area and let fire burn. A severe irritant to the eyes from liquid splashes. Use non-sparking tools and equipment. Department of Transportation hazard labels, and a general description of the chemical.
Capillary chromatography of C1-C18 monochlorinated n-alkyl acetates, J. It is a colorless liquid at room temperature. Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting upper and lower eyelids occasionally. Because of its fast evaporation rate, methyl acetate is useful as the fast-evaporating component in high-low solvent systems and in other applications where fast solvent release and quick dry-to-touch time are needed. If vomiting occurs, keep head below hips to prevent aspiration into lungs. Please note that we cannot offer bulk quantities for some products. Liquid irritates eyes and may cause defatting and cracking of skin.
Physical and Chemical Properties Appearance: Colorless liquid. Methyl acetate-water binary azeotrope, methyl acetate-methanol binary azeotrope, and methyl acetate-methanol-water ternary azeotrope have boiling points quite close to that of azeotrope, thereby, it is difficult to separate and the product purification is very complicated. Thirtieth Anniversary of the Retention Index According to Kovats in Gas-Liquid Chromatography, J. Label First Aid: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes or skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Acta, 48 195-196 , 1965, 1809-1815. A full-face piece organic vapor respirator may be worn up to 50 times the exposure limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest.
Transport Information Domestic Land, D. Processing, use or contamination of this product may change the waste management options. Incompatibilities: Nitrates, strong oxidizers, alkalis, and acids. China , 24 10 , 2007, 1404-1408. Methyl acetate is an active solvent for the following resins: cellulose acetate butyrate, nitrocellulose, vinyl copolymers, acrylics, epoxies, polyamides, phenolics, alkyds, and polyesters. Volatile chemicals have a high risk of being aspirated into the victim's lungs during vomiting which increases the medical problems.
When released into the air, this material may be removed from the atmosphere to a moderate extent by wet deposition. The reaction of methyl acetate and a base, for example sodium hydroxide, is a second-order reaction with respect to both reactants. Methyl acetate is a common ingredient of paint, coatings, adhesives and sealants. The main products are potassium sulphate, potassium nitrate, potassium hydroxide, caustic soda, sodium sulfide,sodium carbonate, annual production capacity is 6,000,000 tons. Label Precautions: Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. A low-boiling 57 C colourless, flammable liquid, it is used as a solvent for many resins and oils. Extremely flammable - readily forms explosive mixtureswith air.
This table shows how each list refers to the substance. At elevated temperature its solubility in water is much higher. Withdraw immediately in case of rising sound from venting safety devices or discoloration of tank. In the traditional process, one reactor and nine distillation columns are required to produce high purity methyl acetate. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Because of its fast evaporation rate, methyl acetate is useful as the fast-evaporating component in high-low solvent systems and in other applications where fast solvent release and quick dry-to-touch time are needed. Capillary chromatography of C1-C18 monochlorinated n-alkyl acetates, J.
When released into water, this material may biodegrade to a moderate extent. Water spray may reduce vapor, but may not prevent ignition in closed spaces. Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals Standard List see more about these. No one should ever enter into a hazardous environment without proper training from qualified instructors. Water spray may be used to keep fire exposed containers cool. Nova, 30 8 , 2007, 2031-2034.
Flush victim's eyes with water or normal saline solution for 20 to 30 minutes while simultaneously calling a hospital or poison control center. Teil 3: Berechnung der Retentionsindices aliphatischer, alicyclischer und aromatischer Verbindungen, Helv. Citing this page If you need to cite this page, you can copy this text: Kenneth Barbalace. It integrates the reaction and separation, i. Methyl acetate, also referred to as Metac, acetic acid methyl ester or methyl ethanoate, is a carboxylate ester typically used as a solvent. Inhalation causes headache, fatigue, and drowsiness; high concentrations can produce central nervous system depression and optic nerve damage.
