N-Vinyl-2-Pyrrolidinone

CAS No. 88-12-0

Formula: C6H9NO
Basic Info

N-Vinylpyrrolidone ("NVP") is an organic compound consisting of a 5-membered lactam linked to a vinyl group. It is a colorless liquid although commercial samples can appear yellowish.
It is produced industrially by reacting 2-pyrrolidone with acetylene. It is the precursor to polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), an important synthetic material. The NVP monomer is commonly used as a reactive diluent in ultraviolet and electron-beam curable polymers applied as inks, coatings or adhesives.
