Propylene Carbonate Manufacture in India
Propylene Carbonate (PC) is a polar aprotic solvent used as a “green” sustainable alternative solvent for chemical transformations. It is a low toxicity, biodegradable, non-corrosive colourless liquid with a high boiling point, low vapor pressure, and EPA VOC exemption.Propylene Carbonate is an effective substitute for more hazardous solvents such a MEK, methylene chloride, toluene, acetone, NMP, and perchloroethylene. Propylene Carbonate is also compatible with other solvents providing an efficient ingredient in co-solvent formulations. It is widely used in the manufacture of paints, adhesives, coatings, surface cleaners, degreasers, strippers, and inks formulations as well as in lithium-ion batteries, as electrolytic solvent, and in the removal of carbon dioxide from natural gas.
