Ethyl Acetate (a.k.a. EA, Ethyl Ethanoate) is a colorless, volatile liquid with a characteristic fruity odor. It is the ester of ethanol and acetic acid and it is largely used as a polar aprotic solvent. It is miscible with oxygenated and chlorinated solvents. It occurs naturally in fruits and is found in alcoholic beverages, as it is a Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolite.
