Methyl formate is an ester derivative of formic acid and a colorless, transparent and volatile liquid at
room temperature.It has a pleasant smell.Soluble in water, alcohol and ether,
but also saponification with water and lye.It hydrolyzes easily in moisture.
Its vapor and air form an explosive mixture with an explosive limit of 6.0% ~ 20.0%(volume).
Methyl formate is an important raw material for organic synthesis. It is widely used in perfume,
solvent, organic synthesis, fungicide, insecticide and other fields.Can be used to prepare formic acid,
formamide, dimethyl formamide, glycol, chloroformic acid trichloromethyl ester, glycol,
acetic anhydride, acetic acid and other important chemical products.

Production methods of Methyl formate
1. Direct esterification is obtained by esterification of formic acid and methanol.
Mix anhydrous calcium chloride with formic acid and stir to cool.Slowly add the methanol.
After 2.5h reflux, the finished product can be obtained by distillation.
2. Carbonylation of methanol.
3. Methanol dehydrogenation.
4. Oxidation dehydrogenation of methanol.
5. One-step synthesis of syngas.
Storage features:Warehouse ventilation and low temperature drying;
Store separately from oxidizer
