n-Propyl Acetate

n-Propyl Acetate, also known as propyl ethanoate, is an organic ester of 1-propanol and acetic acid, with sulfuric acid as a catalyst and water produced as a byproduct. This clear, colorless liquid is known by its characteristic odor of pears. Due to this fact, it is commonly used in fragrances and as a flavor additive.
