How to detect Ethyl acetate

Formula: C4H8O2 | CAS: 141-78-6

Synonyms: acetic ester, acetic ether, ethyl ester of acetic acid, ethyl ethanoate, acetidin, acetoxyethane

Ethyl acetate is a powerful and widely used solvent for varnishes, coatings and films such as nitrocellulose. Ethyl acetate is often the target for gas sensors, even though it is non-toxic, due to its wide use and high flammability.
