gamma-Butyrolactone CAS 96-48-0 is a hygroscopic colorless, water-miscible liquid with a weak characteristic odor. It is the simplest 4-carbon lactone. It is mainly used as an intermediate in the production of other chemicals, e.g. methyl-2-pyrrolidone.
gamma-Butyrolactone CAS 96-48-0 is a butan-4-olide that is tetrahydrofuran substituted by an oxo group at position 2. It has a role as a neurotoxin and a metabolite. One of the furans with a carbonyl thereby forming a cyclic lactone. It is an endogenous compound made from gamma-aminobutyrate and is the precursor of gamma-hydroxybutyrate. It is also used as a pharmacological agent and solvent.
gamma-Butyrolactone CAS 96-48-0 could be supplied in commercial size with competitive price.
