Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Citrofol BII, is a plasticizer or carrier solvent permitted in the field of food additives, food contact material as well as for polymers specially for cellulosics. It is also used in synthesis flavoring substances and adjuvants. Acetyl Tributyl Citrate can be used as a component of adhesives.
Acetyl Tributyl Citrate USP
Citrolfol AII acetyltriethyl citrate, C14H22O8, a citrate ester, was initially used as a a plasticizer in polymers such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and cellulose derivates, but its usefulness has grown into multiple applications as the demand for more health- and environmentally friendly materials accelerates.
Triethyl citrates offer an excellent alternative for plasticizer products currently under under scrutiny — phthalates and adipates — and can replace them in cosmetics, pharmaceutical coatings, food-contact films and in plastic articles.
Applications include film-coated tablets in pharmaceutical products, personal care products such as aerosol hair sprays, nail polishes and perfumes, and in industrial applications such as can coatings, ink formulations, molded articles, and transparency films.
