Butyl lactate, molecular formula C7H14O3, molecular weight 146.21. Combustible in case of open fire and high heat. It can react with oxidant. Its vapor is heavier than air and can spread to a relatively far place at a lower place. It will ignite and recoil when encountering an ignition source. In case of high heat, the internal pressure of the container will increase, which may cause cracking and explosion.
