Application: 1) Electronic Industry: Propylene Carbonate can be used as good dielectric in high energy cells and condensers.
2) Macromolecule Industry: Propylene Carbonate can be used as solvent and plasticizer for polymers.
3) Chemical Industry: Propylene Carbonate can be used as the main material to compound Dimethyl Carbonate, and widely used in the removal of CO2 and H2S from natural gas, petroleum cracking gas.
4) Other fields: Propylene Carbonate can also be used in textile and printing & dyeing industry.

Storage and transportation: Propylene Carbonate is combustible. If coming into contact with oxidization it will burn. It should be stored in a cool and windy special warehouse far from fire and transported as a combustible chemical product.
