CAS no. 108-32-7
Propylene carbonate (often abbreviated PC) is an organic compound with the formula CH3C2H4O2CO. It is a carbonate ester derived propylene glycol. This colorless and odorless liquid is useful as a polar, aprotic solvent. Propylene carbonate is chiral but is used exclusively as the racemic mixture.
Propylene carbonate is a byproduct of the synthesis of polypropylene carbonate from propylene oxide and carbon dioxide. It can be manufactured from the same feedstocks, using different reaction conditions. It can be also prepared from, e.g., urea and propylene glycol over zinc-iron double oxide catalyst.
