This product can serve as a reagent and solvent that is not only non-toxic and biodegradable with tunable chemical reactivity but also is exempt from the restrictions placed on most VOCs in the US. Dimethyl Carbonate is virtually a clear, colorless liquid with a pleasant order and can be used as an eco-friendly alternative to dimethyl sulfate (or methyl halides) and phosgene for methylation and carboxylation reactions.

Benefits

  •  Clear, colorless liquid with a mild, pleasant odor
  • Versatile, non-toxic, and biodegradable
  • Exempt from the restrictions placed on most VOCs in the U.S.
  • Low evaporation rate
  • Low density
  • Freeze-thaw stability
  • Low maximum incremental reactivity

Applications 

Use Dimethyl Carbonate for:

  • Paint and coatings as a carrier solvent or dispersing medium for binders, pigments, and colorants.
  • Household, industrial, and institutional as a rapid biodegradability and low toxicity for most degreasing applications.
  • Inks as a toluene and ethyl acetate replacement in Gravure ink applications.
  • for Aerosols as lower VOC content due to low MIR value.
  • for Resin Manufacturing as an alternative to alkylating agents used in a variety of synthetic and industrial applications.
