1. Solvent: BA is a polar organic solvent with good solubility and volatility. It can be used as a solvent for paints, inks, adhesives, resins and varnishes. Butyl acetate is more volatile and helps to dry quickly and form a uniform coating.

2. Spices and flavors: Because chemical butyl acetate has a fruity flavor, it is often used as a spice ingredient in food and perfume. It is widely used in food, beverage, candy, chewing gum, soap, shampoo and other products to give it a fruity smell.

3. Chemical synthesis: butyl acetate is an important intermediate in organic chemical synthesis. It can be used as the starting material of esterification reaction for the preparation of other ester compounds. In addition, butyl acetate can also be used to synthesize a variety of organic compounds, such as dyes, fragrances, drugs and plastic additives.

4. Cleaning and detergents: butyl acetate has good solubility and can be used in the formulation of cleaning and detergents. It can quickly remove oil and color stains, suitable for household cleaning and industrial cleaning purposes.

5. Printing and dyeing industry: butyl acetate can be used for the dissolution and dilution of dyes and pigments, and is widely used in the printing and dyeing industry. It can help the dye to adhere evenly to the textile and paper, providing better color results.
