In a solvent like ethanol or water, ethyl triphenyl phosphonium acetate (ETPA) makes up 70% of a liquid mixture known as a "ETPA 70% solution." The molecular name for ETPA is quaternary ammonium salt (C20H24O2P).

As a mild acylating agent and phase transfer catalyst, ETPA is a useful reagent utilised in chemical synthesis. With the help of nucleophiles such alcohols and amines, the acetyl group of the acetate ion in ETPA is transferred, resulting in the formation of esters and amides, respectively.

ETPA is utilised as a phase transfer catalyst to help reactants move across immiscible phases in addition to its acylating capabilities. Due to this characteristic, ETPA can be used to create a variety of organic compounds, including medicines and agrochemicals.

In industrial settings, such as the manufacture of surfactants and polymers, ETPA 70% solution is frequently employed. Additionally, it serves as a reagent in the production of chiral catalysts as well as the creation of a few pharmaceuticals. Since it is simpler to dissolve and store than the compound in its pure solid state, the 70% solution form of ETPA is more practical for handling and shipping.
