1,3 Dioxolane

Often referred to simply as Dioxolane, is a powerful solvent used in a variety of formulations, production processes, or as a reactant. It comes in a color-free liquid form, with an odor reminiscent of Ether. It’s able to quickly dissolve polar polymers like epoxies, polyesters, and urethanes, since its small size allows for rapid penetration. The solvent’s low boiling point of 75-76 C allows it to dry quickly. 1,3 Dioxolane gets used as an intermediary in preparing Acyclovir-d4 and in synthesizing new Vandetanib (V097100) analogs. It’s a popular solvent for fats, oils, dyes, and waxes. The chemical is also used in lithium batteries. Other popular applications for the solvent include textiles, electroplating and metal working, the gas scrubbing process, softening and/or dissolving polymers, inorganic and organometallic systems, and petroleum and gasoline production. 1,3 Dioxolane is soluble in Dichloromethane, Chloroform, Methanol, Ethanol, and Ethyl Acetate.

Methylal Anhydrous | Dimethoxymethane | Formaldehyde Dimethyl Ether

Methylal Anhydrous also known as Methylal, Dimethoxymethane or Formaldehyde dimethyl ether, is an Acetal solvent with a -30 deg C flash point and is manufactured from Methanol.  With a high solubility power, Methylal tends to significantly lower the surface tension of formulations, making it an ideal solvent choice.  As with all Acetals, it has an extremely low toxicity profile and is sustainable from an atmospheric chemistry perspective.

Common applications for Methylal include cleaners, urethane foam manufacturing paint strippers, aerosols, and cosmetic manufacturing.
