It can also be used as a solvent in paint and varnish removers and for electronic applications. As a dry cleaning agent, it is used for oil extraction. It is also involved in the preparation of cyclopentanone derivatives like cyclopenylamine and cyclopentanol which find application in the perfume industry.
