Dimethyl Carbonate is most commonly used in inks, coatings and paint as a VOC-exempt solvent. Dimethyl Carbonate is also used as a fuel oxygenate additive and is commonly found in many bio-fuels. Other applications for DMC include adhesives and aerosol sprays.
In food and drink, dimethyl carbonate is used as a beverage preservative, particularly in the preservation of wine as it inactivates yeasts that cause spoilage. It is also used as a stabilizing agent in non-alcoholic drinks such as isotonic sports drinks, flavoured water, carbonated and non-carbonated juices.
