DESCRIPTION

TRIACETIN DESCRIPTION


Triacetin Chemical Properties:

Triacetin is a colorless, odorless oily liquid. It is miscible with ethanol, ether, benzene, chloroform and other organic solvents, soluble in acetone, insoluble in mineral oil. Slightly soluble in water.

Triacetin has a very faint, fruity odor. It has a mild, sweet taste that is bitter above 0.05%.


Triacetin Production Methods:

Triacetin can be derived from the esterification of glycerol and acetic acid. After preheating glycerol to 50-60℃, add acetic acid, benzene and sulfuric acid. Heat and stir for refluxing dehydration, and recycle the benzene. Then add acetic anhydride for heating of 4h. After cooling, the mixture was neutralized with 5% sodium carbonate to pH 7, and the crude layer was dried and the crude oil was dried with calcium chloride. Distill under reduced pressure, collect the 128-131℃(0.93 kPa) fraction, namely glycerol triacetate.


Triacetin Safety Profile:

An eye irritant. Combustible when exposed to heat, flame, or powerful oxidizers. To fight fire, use alcohol foam, water, CO2, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.


STORAGE & PACKAGE

Triacetin Storage:

Triacetin is stable and should be stored in a well-closed, nonmetallic container, in a cool, dry place.


Triacetin Package:

  • 240kg Iron drum, 19.2 tons in one 20ft container with pallets.

  • 1150kg IBC Tank.
