A compound produced by the reaction between an acid and an alcohol with the elimination of a molecule of water, as ethyl acetate, or Dimethyl Sulfate


Organic chemistry, the chemistry of carbon containing compounds, has played a major role in our society throughout the years. Most of the common drugs used in the medical profession today, from aspirin to AZT, owe their beginnings to synthetic organic chemistry. Organic synthesis is that branch of organic chemistry that deals with building large, often complex molecules from smaller ones.

Esters encompass a large family of organic compounds with broad applications in medicine, biology, chemistry and industry.


I'm not finding any issues or effects with esters themselves, however the information on the dimethyl sulfate  and the ethyl acetate really scares me.
