SOLKANE-Solvents-iconAfter the phase out of CFC 113 first and HCFC 141b, SOLKANE® 365 Component for Solvent Formulations is now in the major industrial nations solutions.

SOLKANE® 365 is already widely used as foam blowing agent for polyurethane (PU) production and as a solvent in precision cleaning industries. SOLKANE® 365 is competitively priced and applicable for a wide range of organic reactions, including nucleophilic trifluoromethylation, fluorination, Sonogashira and Suzuki cross-couplings as well as Michael addition reactions.

In addition, SOLKANE® 365 is also successfully used as a non-reactionparticipating-filling-medium in a catalytic fluorination reaction of haloalkanes in our laboratory.

SOLKANE® 365 is a perfect “team player”. It is miscible with a wide range of organic solvents, which makes it a suitable co-solvent for many applications.
