Chemical formula C3H8O2 is a clear solvent which is miscible in all proportions with its low volatility of colorless water of low purity. Polypropylene glycol is a microbicide that is approximately equal to ethanol. Generally, the desired effect is obtained with a concentration in the range 15-30%. In order to meet the needs of the cosmetic industry, it is produced with high purity and odorless properties.
Production and Reactions
Propylene glycol; propylene oxide. Methane and sludge can be obtained by reaction with oxygen.
C3H8O2 4 O2? 3 CO2 4 H2O energy
It is used in aerobic or anaerobic treatment of wastewater containing mono propylene glycol.
It is widely used in the formulations in the production stage in this sector.
There is a wide range of use in mouthwashes, mouthwashes, toothpastes, ointments, skin creams, shampoos and perfumes (solutions containing propylene glycol remain generally clear, even when diluted too much with water).
It is used in the lubrication of freezing machines and machines used in the cosmetics industry.
It is used as extractor to obtain active extracts from natural extracts.
