It is also used as an internal standard during gas chromatography analysis of the butyl esters of volatile acids. Its ester derivatives are used in the fragrance and flavor industries as well as cosmetics and industrial lubricants in aviation, refrigeration and automobile. It is used to prepare sodium heptanoate, which is used as a corrosion inhibitor.
