Storage method

Storage Precautions[13] Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. The storage temperature should not exceed 37°C. Keep container tightly sealed. They should be stored separately from oxidants and acids, and avoid mixed storage. Use explosion-proof lighting and ventilation facilities. It is prohibited to use mechanical equipment and tools that are prone to sparks. The storage area should be equipped with emergency release equipment and suitable containment materials.

Synthesis method

1. Obtained from the thermal esterification and distillation of sodium valerate and ethanol in the presence of sulfuric acid or hydrogen chloride.

2. Preparation method:

Add 250mL of 95% ethanol into a reaction bottle equipped with a stirrer and reflux condenser, and slowly cool it in an ice-water bath. Add 200g of concentrated sulfuric acid, then add 83g (1.0mol) of valeronitrile (2), and heat to reflux with stirring for 10 hours. After cooling, pour into ice water, separate the organic layer, wash with water, dry over anhydrous calcium sulfate, fractionate, collect the fractions at 143-145°C to obtain about 100g of ethyl valerate (1), with a yield of 85%.
