I've heard it two ways- Di-ASS-e-til, or Di-A-Cee-Til

I say it the former, which is what flyangler posted.

Diacetyl:


Pronunciation: dī-as′ĕ-til, dī-as′ĕ-tăl

A yellow liquid, (CH3CO)2, having the pungent odor of quinone and carrying the aromas of coffee, vinegar, butter, and other foods; a byproduct of carbohydrate degradation.

How do you pronounce 'quinone'?

Better yet: Saccharomyces cerevisiae (I pronounce it: 'beer yeast').

I've had several organic chemistry, and biochemistry professors over the years. In my part of the country, it is mostly pronounced dī-as′ĕ-tăl. BUT, it is frequently pronounced Die - a - see - tull. I think the former rolls off the tongue more easily than the latter.

Technically, both are correct.
