  • Isoamyl acetate, also known as isopentyl acetate, is an organic compound that is the ester formed from isoamyl alcohol and acetic acid.
  • It is a clear colorless liquid that is only slightly soluble in water, but very soluble in most organic solvents.
  • Banana oil is a term that is applied either to pure isoamyl acetate or to flavorings that are mixtures of isoamyl acetate, amyl acetate, nitrocellulose and other flavors.
  • Pear oil commonly refers to a solution of isoamyl acetate in ethanol that is used as an artificial flavor.
  • Isoamyl acetate is also used to test the effectiveness of respirators or gas masks because it has a strong smell which is generally not experienced as unpleasant that can be detected at low concentrations, and has low toxicity.
  • Isoamyl acetate can be prepared in the laboratory by the acid catalyzed Fischer esterification reaction between isoamyl alcohol and glacial acetic acid.
  • Isoamyl acetate is made commercially by reacting acetic acid with amyl alcohol to produce amyl acetate, of which there are eight isomers. The isomers are then separated from each other by fractional distillation to obtain the one desired form, isoamyl acetate.
  • It is also used as a solvent for some varnishes and nitrocellulose lacquers, as well as being a honey bee pheromone and can be used to attract large groups of honeybees to a small area.
