Ethyl Acrylate Production Cost Analysis 2020

Ethyl acrylate is an organic compound, which is an ethyl ester of acrylic acid. In appearance, it is a colourless liquid with a characteristic acrid odour. It is primarily manufactured for paints, textiles, and non-woven fibres. It also acts as an indicator in the synthesis of numerous pharmaceutical intermediates.

Ethyl acrylate is manufactured by acid-catalysed esterification of acrylic acid, which in turn is manufactured by the process of oxidation of propylene. It may also be produced from acetylene, carbon monoxide, and ethanol by a Reppe reaction. Ethyl acrylate is utilised in the production of polymers like resins, plastics, rubber, or denture materials. It is a reactant for homologous alkyl acrylates or the acrylic esters by transesterification with higher alcohols through acidic or basic catalysis. Ethyl acrylate is also utilised as a flavouring agent. It has been found as a volatile component in pineapples and Beaufort cheese and is a secondary component in vanilla flavour obtained from the heat extraction of vanilla in amounts of up to 1 ppm.
