less toxic alternative to dissolve PMMA

hi!
Which of the solvents (THF, chloroform, MEK, acetone) that are use
to dissolve PMMA is less toxic? or is there any other less toxic
alternatives? can a mixture be made between toxic and less toxic
solvent so that PMMA dissolves but the overall mixture is not so
toxic? thanks heaps.

acetone
You could try esters. Some are marketed as "green solvents", e.g. DBE by DuPont. I do not know if they could dissolve PMMA
Try mixtures of water and ethanol. Probably the best solvent in terms of toxicity, and the worst in terms of solvency.
