Description: Methyl propionate is an organic compound belonging to the family of carboxylic acid esters, which is commonly applied as a solvent for cellulose nitrate and lacquers. It also serves as a raw material in organic synthesis for manufacturing paints, varnishes and other chemical productions such as methyl methacrylate. Besides, the fruity smell and taste of methyl propanoate result in its usage of fragrances and flavouring agents. Methyl propanoate can be synthesized by esterifying propionic acid with methanol. In the field of industry, it is produced by the reaction of ethylene with carbon monoxide and methanol in the presence of nickel carbonyl.
Usage: Methyl propionate is used as a solvent for cellulose nitrate and lacquers, and as a raw material for the production of paints, varnishes and other chemicals such as methyl methacrylate. Due to its fruity smell and taste, it is also used in fragrances and flavouring.
