Concentration converter and solvent tables

This table is intended to give a summary of the most common solvents used in organic electronics. It is not intended to be exhaustive (that's what Google is for) but instead is intended as a one-page "crib-sheet" showing the most useful properties of the most useful solvents. We've also included a handy little concentration calculator to convert between % by weight to mg/ml.

Solvent:
Solvent density: g/cm3
Concentration: mg/ml
Concentration: % by weight
