1. Organic synthesis: EAC is a common solvent and intermediate, which is often used in organic synthesis to trigger esterification reactions, etherification reactions, acid catalytic reactions, etc. It can also be used as a solvent for acidic catalysts and reagents.

2. Coatings and adhesives: chemical ethyl acetate is widely used in the coatings and adhesives industry. It can be used as an organic solvent to adjust the viscosity and consistency of coatings and adhesives to provide suitable fluidity. At the same time, ethyl acetate can also volatilize quickly after drying, speeding up the drying speed of coatings and adhesives.

3. Spices and food additives: Ethyl acetate has a fruity aroma and is widely used in the spice industry. It is often used in the synthesis of food spices, giving food a unique aroma. In addition, it can also be used as a food additive for flavors, flavors and so on.

4. Dyes and printing industry: ethyl acetate can be used as a solvent in dyes and printing industry. It is able to dissolve certain dyes and pigments, making them easier to color and distribute evenly.

5. Drug manufacturing: ethyl acetate is also used in the pharmaceutical industry. It can be used as a solvent, extractant and extract in pharmaceutical manufacturing, for the extraction of active ingredients in herbal medicines, or as a solvent impurity removal for pharmaceuticals.
