General description

Visit our Sensor Applications portal to learn more.
Propylene carbonate (PC) is an organic amide compound generally used as solvent in organic electrochemistry. It is considered as a high-permittivity component of electrolytes.

Application

It has been used to exfoliate graphite oxide by bath sonication. It has also been used to prepare 1M lithium perchlorate, which served as electrolyte in measurement of thin-film of orthorhombic Niobium pentoxide (Nb2O5).

Proline-catalyzed aldol reactions between enolizable ketones and aromatic aldehydes can be carried out in propylene carbonate. When enantiomerically pure propylene carbonate is used, the combination of (R)-proline and (R)-propylene carbonate constitutes a matched pair, while (S)-proline and (R)-propylene carbonate constitutes

We present the high pressure dielectric spectroscopy (up to 4.2 GPa) and ultrasonic study (up to 1.7 GPa) of liquid and glassy propylene carbonate (PC). Both of the methods provide complementary pictures of the glass transition in PC under pressure.
