γ- Butyrolactone, also known as γ-butyrolactone, 4-hydroxybutyrolactone. It is a colorless oily liquid, miscible with water, soluble in methanol, ethanol, acetone, ether, benzene and carbon tetrachloride. It can volatilize with water vapor and decompose in hot alkali solution. It has a unique aromatic odor and can be used as an edible spice. It is stable in a neutral medium, and it is susceptible to reversible hydrolysis in hot alkalis. When the pH returns to neutral, lactones are generated, and the hydrolysis is slower in an acid medium. γ- Butyrolactone is widely used as a fragrance and pharmaceutical intermediate. As a high boiling point solvent, it has strong solubility, good electrical performance and stability, and is safe to use. As a proton-type strong solvent, it can dissolve most low-molecular polymers and some high-molecular polymers, and can be used as battery electrolyte to replace strong corrosive acid. It can be used as a carrier in the polymerization reaction and participate in the polymerization reaction. It can be used for pyrrolidone, butyric acid, succinic acid, paint remover, etc. It is widely used in the synthesis of fine chemicals such as medicine and perfume. It is also commonly used as a solvent for resins, and it is a high-safety/low-toxic environment-friendly solvent. In the field of polyurethane, it can be used as a viscosity modifier (reactive diluent) for polyurethane, and as a curing agent for polyurethane and amino coating systems.
