Description

General description

Propylene carbonate is a cyclic carbonate commonly used as an organic solvent. Many methods have been reported for its synthesis from propylene oxide and carbon dioxide under different reaction conditions. The dielectric property, relaxation times and viscosity has been studied. It is a potential electrochemical solvent in preparing aprotic battery electrolytes.
