Water Solubility


Under acidic conditions it forms an equilibrium mixture of both compounds. These compounds then may go on to form a polymer. When treated with a non-nucleophilic base, like lithium diisopropylamide, Butyrolactone can become an alpha-carbon nucleophile. The related compound caprolactone can be used to make a polyester in this manner.

Butyrolactone is not active in its own right; its mechanism of action stems from its identity as a prodrug of .
The hypnotic effect of is enhanced by combination with alcohol. A 2003 rat study showed that Butyrolactone in combination with ethanol showed a potentiated hypnotic effect, as the sleep-timing measure was longer than both of the individual components combined

Butyrolactone is a non-toxic transparent liquid in the shape of oil. It can be mixed with water and dissolved by ethanol ether, benzene and acetone. It can dissolve many other organic and inorganic compound. Using Butyrolactone is very safe and convenient, because it is a liquid with high boiling, powerful solvency, good electrical and stability properties.Butyrolactone is an important organic synthetic raw material and a fine solvent. It is mainly used as synthetic pyrolidone series products cyclopropylamine acetyl-r-butyrolactone, besides these,Butyrolactone is also used as solvent for agricultural chemicals, polymer, dyestuff and printing. Using butyrolactone as raw material, we can produce aromatic chemicals, medicinal intermediates and rust remover.
