a keto-pyrrole, that is a 5-membered
structure compound (gamma-butyrolactam).
Lactam structure compound including pyrrolidone has
good solvency property,
useful in industrial application. It is an important part of antibiotics, such as penicillin.
These structures, cyclic esters and analogues, are active nucleuses in
pharmacological activity and flavorings. Lactams have big demand
in artificial fibre industry. They are polymerizable
and used as nylon precursors. 2-Pyrrolidone is
used as a solvent
for surface treatment for textiles,
metal coated plastics, polymers, and paint removing.
and its derivatives are
used as Intermediates for the synthesis
of agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, textile
auxiliaries, plasticizers, polymer solvent,
stabilizers, specialty inks and as a nylon
precursor. NMP is used as a solvent
for paint stripping and resins; cleaner for polymeric
residues; metal finishing; printed circuit board manufacturing;
SBR latex production; pigment dispersant; extraction
of acetylene and butadiene; dehydration of natural gas;
lube oil processing;
is a polar solvent that is used in organic chemistry and polymer
chemistry. Large scale applications include the recovery and purification
of acetylenes, olefins, and diolefins, gas purification, and aromatics
extraction from feedstocks. Several reports have described the use
of NMP as a solvent in the synthesis of such compounds as a 5,10-dideaza-5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofolic
acid, substituted thioamides, and gels derived from polyallylamine
and carbon dioxide.2,3,4 The preparation of intercalation compounds
of NMP with kaolinite has been described. The reactivity of an epoxyhydroxylinoleic
acid derivative with lysine groups in NMP as a model of lipid peroxidation
has been investigated.......
(NMP) is a slowly evaporating liquid with low viscosity and
excellent solvency power.
is colorless, has a faint amine odor and is soluble in water
and conventional organic solvents.
is used in a wide range of industrial applications, including
process chemicals, engineering plastics, coatings, agricultural
chemicals, electronics, paint stripping and cleaning, adhesives
and pigment dispersions.
NMP is used in industrial chemical processes, consumers may
potentially come into contact with NMP through the use of certain
commercially available products, such as certain paint removers
or cleaning agents.
is classified as a combustible liquid and will sustain a fire,
