Propylene carbonate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Propylene Carbonate as Solvent

In the context of Green Chemistry, processes that minimise environmental impact are of great interest at both the industrial and academic levels, and the use of solvents that are innocuous to the environment is also a factor of great interest. Propylene carbonate maybe an appropriate choice. Not only it has a low evaporation rate, low toxicity, and VOC exemption, PC also has other benefits such as:

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid

Chemical Properties

Propylene carbonate is a clear, colorless, mobile liquid, with a faint odor.

Uses

Pharmaceutic aid (gelling agent).

Uses

propylene carbonate is used in chemical reactions as a solvent, plasticizer, solubilizer, or dilutent.

Production Methods

Propylene carbonate may be prepared by the reaction of sodium bicarbonate with propylene chlorohydrin.

Preparation

To a stirred solution of 1,2- propanediol 957 (230 mg, 3.0 mmol) in toluene (8 mL) was added DPC (670 mg, 3.1 mmol). After stirring at 110 ℃ for 1.5 h, the reaction mixture was allowed to cool to room temperature, diluted with dichloromethane (40 mL), washed with brine (30 mL), dried over anhydrous MgSO4, and concentrated to dryness under reduced pressure. The crude product was distilled in vacuo in a kugelrohr apparatus to give 4-methyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-one 958 (254 mg) in 83% yield.

Pharmaceutical Applications

Propylene carbonate is used mainly as a solvent in oral and topical pharmaceutical formulations.
In topical applications, propylene carbonate has been used in combination with propylene glycol as a solvent for corticosteroids. The corticosteroid is dissolved in the solvent mixture to yield microdroplets that can then be dispersed in petrolatum.Propylene carbonate has been used as a dispensing solvent in topical preparations.
Propylene carbonate has also been used in hard gelatin capsules as a nonvolatile, stabilizing, liquid carrier. For formulations with a low dosage of active drug, a uniform drug content may be obtained by dissolving the drug in propylene carbonate and then spraying this solution on to a solid carrier such as compressible sugar; the sugar may then be filled into hard gelatin capsules
Propylene carbonate may additionally be used as a solvent, at room and elevated temperatures, for many cellulose-based polymers and plasticizers. Propylene carbonate is also used in cosmetics.

Safety

Propylene carbonate is used as a solvent in oral and topical pharmaceutical formulations, and is generally regarded as an essentially nontoxic and nonirritant material.
In animal studies, propylene carbonate was found to cause tissue necrosis after parenteral administration.
(mouse, oral): 20.7 g/kg
(mouse, SC): 15.8 g/kg
(rat, oral): 29 g/kg
(rat, SC): 11.1 g/kg

storage

Propylene carbonate and its aqueous solutions are stable but may degrade in the presence of acids or bases, or upon heating;
Store in a well-closed container in a cool, dry place.

Purification Methods

It is manufactured by reaction of 1,2-propylene oxide with CO2 in the presence of a catalyst (quaternary ammonium halide). Contaminants include propylene oxide, carbon dioxide, 1,2-and 1,3-propanediols, allyl alcohol and ethylene carbonate. It can be purified by percolation through molecular sieves (Linde 5A, dried at 350o for 14hours under a stream of argon), followed by distillation under a vacuum. [Jasinski & Kirkland Anal Chem 39 163 1967.] It can be stored over molecular sieves under an inert gas atmosphere. When purified in this way it contains less than 2ppm of water. Activated alumina and dried CaO have also been used as drying agents prior to fractional distillation under reduced pressure. It has been dried with 3A molecular sieves and distilled under nitrogen in the presence of p-toluenesulfonic acid, then redistilled and the middle fraction collected. [Beilstein 19 III/IV 1564, 19/4 V 21.]

Incompatibilities

Propylene carbonate hydrolyzes rapidly in the presence of strong acids and bases, forming mainly propylene oxide and carbon dioxide. Propylene carbonate can also react with primary and secondary amines to yield carbamates.

Regulatory Status

Included in the FDA Inactive Ingredients Database (topical ointments). Included in the Canadian List of Acceptable Nonmedicinal Ingredients.
