Is there any method to dissolve the cement that seals two pvc pipes together?

I am not aware of anything. Why do you want to get to fittings apart? If so you can sometimes get PVC apart by sawing the pipe off then taking a saw and saw the pipe inside the fitting in several places. Then take a hammer and a screw driver and chisel the pipe out of the fitting. Be aware it is not easy and even the best of us can break them. Be prepared for a break and have plan B in mind if you try this.

Wouldn't help anyway. PVC cement actually dissolves some of the pipe and fitting as it welds them together. Just cut it out with a hacksaw since you can save neither the end of the pipe nor the fitting anyway.
