Methyl acetate is used as a solvent in glues, paints and nail polish removers. It is also used in adhesives, sealants and coatings. Further, it finds use as solvent in chemical reactions as well as used for extraction purpose. It is involved in the production of acetic anhydride by carbonylation reaction.
