Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Weight of evidence approach based on three peer-reviewed values from handbooks (175 g/L at 25°C, 240 g/L at 20°C and "very soluble") and one estimated value using the US EPA Epi Suite software (174.8 g/L at 25°C) was used to indicate the water solubility of propylene carbonate.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
200 g/L
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

The four obtained values are in close range of eachother, although reported at a slightly different temperature. Propylene carbonate is concluded to be very soluble in water (> 10000 mg/L). The final value is calculated as the rounded up mean of the two quantitative values and reported at 25°C. One supporting value (240 g/L at 20°C and pH 7) is in conformity with the weight of evidence values.
