What is it about?
This paper describes some simple models to predict polarity, boiling point and viscosity of alkyl glycerol ethers from fitting equations developed using a set of these bio-solvents.
Why is it important?
Searching the best bio-solvent to substitute a conventional organic solvent for a given application can be a tedious task, if one uses a trial-and-error approach. The reliable prediction of some key solvent properties can help to concentrate the experimental efforts an a smaller set of promising candidates.
