General description

Polyvinylpyrrolidone is a large polymer containing a carbonyl, C-N and alkyl functional groups.

Application

Polyvinylpyrrolidone has been used:
  • to perform intracytoplasmic sperm injection procedure
  • in the preparation of endophyte coating agent mixture, to coat creeping bentgrass seed
  • as a component of prehybridization solution

Packaging

100, 500 g in poly bottle
