Methyl acetate (also known as methyl ethanoate, acetic acid methyl ester, MeOAc, Tereton, Devoton) is a carboxylate ester with a molecular formula of C3H6O2. It is a clear, colourless liquid that has a typical ester odour similar to glues and nail polish removers. It is very flammable with a flashpoint of -10° C and a flammability rating of 3. Industry uses of methyl ethanoate involve the reaction of carbonylation to produce acetic anhydride. It is also used in paint and coating adhesives, lubricants, intermediates, processing aids and as a solvent in paint, glue, nail polish and graffiti removers.
