A banana oil is a colorless, sweet-smelling, oily compound, a liquid chemical with the odor of bananas. Banana oil is also called amyl acetate.

It is prepared from fusel oil and sodium acetate. A fusel oil is a volatile poisonous oily liquid, consisting largely of amyl alcohol, and having a disagreeable odor and taste, obtained when potato, corn, or grape spirits are rectified. Sodium acetate, (also rarely, sodium ethanoate) is the sodium salt of acetic acid. It is an inexpensive chemical produced in industrial quantities for a wide range of uses.
