Applications

Iodine in isopropenyl acetate is a unique catalyst for the acetylation of a variety of alcohols, phenols and amines under solvent free conditions. It is used as a solvent for cellulose, plastics, oil and fats. It is also a building block used for various organic synthesis.

Notes

Store away from oxidizing agents. Keep the container tightly closed and place it in a cool, dry and well ventilated condition.
