Glycerol carbonate (4-hydroxymethyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-one, shortly GC) is a dense, viscous, water soluble solvent. The high dielectric constant and dipole moment make it a suitable non-aqueous green solvent for several salts in different applications. GC dissolves significant amounts of inorganic salts such as KF. The saturation of GC with KF leads to the formation of a viscous liquid at room temperature. In this paper, we report on conductivity, rheology, differential scanning calorimetry and...[Show more]
