Solvent for Nitrocellulose

Solvent for Nitrocellulose

What solvent would you recommend for high viscosity nitrocellulose ?

Low molecular weight alcohols and ketones are generally excellent solvents for cellulose nitrate, e.g.  n-butanol, acetone and methylethylketone (MEK). Since cellulose nitrate, or nitrocellulose, often has to be mixed with plasticisers or soft resins, its reaction to solvent may differ slightly under these circumstances.
