N-Octyl-2-Pyrrolidone is a substituted heterocyclic organic compound and a rapid nonionic wetting agent in
dishwashing,industrial, and institutional cleaners. It also can serve as a solvent for polymers and hydrophobic substances and has uses as a dye carrier for aramid fabrics. The main advantages of N-Octyl-2-Pyrrolidone is its high solvency for hydrophobic molecules.It can also form mixed micelles with several other surfactants,especially,with anionic emulsifiers.
N-Octyl-2-Pyrrolidone is unique in also being a surface active solvent and thus it can be acted as an interfacial solvent.This property is advantageous in many formulations.It’s used in the production of agrochemicals,electronics,
industrial chemicals,initial product for chemical syntheses and solvent.
