Application

1-Vinyl-2-pyrrolidinone (VP) is used in the study of macrophotoinitiator characteristics of poly (vinylchloride) type molecules. Also, used to study the genotoxicity of polyvinylpyrrolidone coated silver nanoparticles.

General description

1-Vinyl-2-pyrrolidinone is a colorless to yellow liquid, with a characteristic odor. Its melting point is around 13.5oC and boils at about 90-92oC. VP is completely miscible in water and in most organic solvents but partially miscible in aliphatic hydrocarbons. Industrial production of VP by reacting 2-pyrrolidone with acetylene at high pressure and temperature has been reported. The vinylation process proceeds in liquid phase and is catalyzed by 3-pyrrolidone -potassium hydroxide.
