About Y-Butyrolactone

GBL is a naturally occurring component in some wines and may be present in similar products. γ-Butyrolactone is produced industrially by dehydrogenation of 1,4-butanediol at a temperature of 180–300 °C and atmospheric pressure in the presence of a copper catalyst.

It is mainly used as an intermediate in the production of other chemicals. It is also used as a solvent in lotions and some polymers. It has been used as a solvent in various laboratory experiments.
