Product Description

Isobutyl acetate is a common solvent. It is produced from the esterification of isobutanol with acetic acid. Like many esters it has a fruity or floral smell at low concentrations and occurs naturally in raspberries, pears and other plants. At higher concentrations the odor can be unpleasant and may cause symptoms of central nervous system depression such as nausea, dizziness and headache.
