Vinyl Acetate (a.k.a. VAM, Vinyl Acetate Monomer, Ethenyl Acetate) is an organic compound, an important vinyl ester, used in the manufacture of many polymers and resins. It is a colorless liquid with a sweet, fruity smell, soluble in most organic solvents, but only slightly soluble in water. On an industrial scale, the dominant production route of Vinyl Acetate is based on the reaction of ethylene with acetic acid and oxygen in the gas phase on heterogeneous catalysts containing palladium.
