About N-Methyl-2-Pyrrolidone

N-Methyl-2-Pyrrolidone (NMP) is produced industrially by a typical ester-to-amide conversion, by treating butyrolactone with methylamine.

NMP is used as a solvent for surface treatment of textiles, resins, and metal coated plastics or as a paint stripper. The polar nature and the low surface tension of NMP makes it an excellent cleaning medium and paint stripping solvent.
