Allyl acetate Uses

 Allyl acetate (CAS NO.591-87-7) is used in organic synthesis.

Allyl acetate Production

 Allyl acetate is generated by the gas phase reaction of propene, acetic acid, and oxygen over a palladium catalyst.
C3H6 + CH3COOH + ½ O2 → CH2=CHCH2OCOCH3 + H2O

Allyl acetate Standards and Recommendations

Allyl acetate Specification

 Allyl acetate (CAS NO.591-87-7) is also named as 2-Propenyl acetate ; 2-Propenyl ethanoate ; 2-Propenyl methanoate ; 3-Acetoxy-1-propene ; 3-Acetoxypropene ; 4-02-00-00180 (Beilstein Handbook Reference) ; AI3-22625 ; Acetic acid, 2-propenyl ester ; Allyl acetic acid ; BRN 1742050 ; HSDB 2697 ; NSC 7612 . Allyl acetate (CAS NO.591-87-7) is clear colourless liquid. It is insoluble in water and slightly less dense than water. Poisonous by ingestion and moderately toxic by inhalation and skin contact. Irritating to skin and eyes. Allyl acetate is an ester. Reacts with acids to liberate heat along with alcohols and acids. Generates heat with strong oxidizing acids. The reaction may be sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products. Also generates heat with basic solutions. Generates flammable hydrogen with alkali metals and hydrides. Emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes when heated to decomposition. Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution. It will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flames. Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Vapor explosion and poison hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Containers may explode when heated. Many liquids are lighter than water.
