What is Propylene Carbonate?

Propylene Carbonate is a clear and odourless liquid used primarily as a polar aprotic solvent. Usually being produced by the carbonation of an epoxide, Propylene Carbonate is seen as a green solvent, using up CO2 in its production. Its high boiling point and flash point make this a relatively safe solvent that is not classified as a VOC in the US.
