How to detect Isobutyl acetate

Formula: C6H12O2 | CAS: 110-19-0

Synonyms: 2-methylpropyl ethanoate, isobutyl ester of acetic acid, 2-methylpropyl acetate, 2-methylpropyl ester of acetic acid, beta-methylpropyl ethanoate

Isobutyl acetate is a flavour in raspberries and not surprisingly, it is engaged as a food additive and in perfumery. It is an excellent solvent, particularly for acetate base varnishes and coatings.
