Ethyl Lactate

Ethyl lactate is a monobasic ester formed from lactic acid and ethanol, commonly used as a solvent. This compound is considered biodegradable and can be used as a water-rinsible degreaser. Due to its relatively low toxicity, ethyl lactate is used commonly in pharmaceutical preparations, food additives and fragrances. It is also used as solvent for nitrocellulose, cellulose acetate, and cellulose ethers. Ethyl lactate hydrolyzes in the presence of water and acids or bases into lactic acid and ethanol. It can be used as a cosolvent to produce suitable conditions for the formation of aryl aldimines.

Ethyl Laurate

Ethyl laurate is a more lipophilic and less toxic form of the free acid. It is usually used as flavor, spice, urethane additives and pharmaceutical raw materials. It can be used as fixing solutions in gas chromatography. It is also used as a softener, accelerator activator and dispersing agent in organic synthesis.

Ethyl Silicate

Ethyl silicate consists of four ethyl groups attached to SiO44- ion, which is called orthosilicate. As an ion in solution, orthosilicate does not exist. Alternatively ethyl silicate can be considered to be the ethyl ester of orthosilicic acid. It is a prototypical alkoxide. It is mainly used as a crosslinking agent in silicone polymers and as a precursor to silicon dioxide in the semiconductor industry. Other applications include coatings for carpets and other objects. It is used in the production of aerogel. These applications exploit the reactivity of the Si-OR bonds.
