Dimethylcarbonate (DMC)

​Dimethyl Carbonate (DMC) is used in chemical synthesis as methylating, carbonylating, methoxylating and metholating agent. DMC can be used as VOC exempt solvent in many paints and coatings. It is a fast evaporating polar solvent and can replace esters, glycol ethers and ketones (like methyl ethyl ketone, MEK) in formulations. DMC is also used in the replacement of phosgene, dimethyl sulphate and methyl chloroformate and as solvent in the electrolyte formulation for batteries. Furthermore, thanks to high oxygen content, it can be used as a fuel additive.

Connect Chemicals supplies DMC to many different industries: resins and coatings, pharmaceutical, electronics, agriculture, photo imaging and several others.
