Wego is a global supplier of Propylene Carbonate (PC)

Wego Chemical Group is a leading global supplier and distributor of organic compounds such as Propylene Carbonate. It can be found under CAS # 108-32-7 or EINECS # 203-572-1. Propylene Carbonate has the molecluar formula C4H6O3, and is commonly referred to by its acronym, PC. PC also has an abundance of alternative synonyms, including: (R,S)-4-Methyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-one, Cyclic Propylene Carbonate, Carbonic Acid Propylene Ester, Cyclic 1,2-Propylene Carbonate, Propylene Glycol Cyclic Carbonate, 1,2-Propanediol Carbonate, and 4-Methyl-2-Oxo-1,3-Dioxolane.

Propylene Carbonate is a downstream product of Propylene Glycol, and an equivalent product to trade names Arconate 5000 and Texacar PC. It is also one of numerous organic carbonates that are esters of Dibutyl Carbonate or Carbonic Acid. It takes the appearance of a colorless liquid, and emanates no notable odor. It has a molar mass of 102.09 g·mol−1, a density of 1.205 g/cm3, a freezing point of −48.8°C and a boiling point of 242°C. PC is soluble in water, and is a hazardous material. 

Propylene Carbonate is widely produced for commercial and industrial use. It is synthesized via the carbonation of Propylene Oxide. One of its primary industrial uses are as a solvent—in particular, as an aprotic solvent and racemate. PC has a very high molecular dipole moment. This means that numerous elements and compounds can be dissolved in PC, such as potassium, sodium, and other alkali metals by electrolysis of their chlorides. PC is often used as a solvent in petroleum products and oil field services, specifically to remove carbon dioxide from natural gas and refined gas. 

Other usages of PC include its function as a component of electrolytes in lithium batteries. Propylene Carbonate also has uses as a component for adhesives, and for coatings products like paints. Its other uses include in electronic materials, in inks and digital ink products, and as a textile auxiliary

As a leading supplier and distributor, Wego provides efficient and reliable logistics management, handling, stocking, and delivery of chemical products like Propylene Carbonate, and can offer shipments in multiple packing sizes. Please contact Wego or request a quote or sample of Propylene Carbonate today.
