We are pleased to announce the launch of our new product: NMP (N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone) to the pharmaceutical industry with EP Grade from our US FDA approved labs.
We look forward to your inquiry to improve your products quality with our high-class product.
Application of NMP
N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) is a high-purity, colorless, and slightly viscous liquid solvent with excellent solvency power and high chemical stability. In the chemical and pharmaceutical industries,it is widely used as a solvent, reaction medium, and cleaning agent due to its ability to dissolve a wide range of organic and inorganic compounds.
In the chemical industry, NMP is commonly used as a solvent for polymeric materials, such as polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), polyacrylonitrile (PAN), and polyimide (PI), due to its ability to dissolve these materials at high concentrations. It is also used as a reaction medium for chemical processes, such as the production of lithium-ion battery electrodes, and as a cleaning agent for equipment and machinery.
In the pharmaceutical industry, NMP is commonly used as a solvent for drug formulation and synthesis, due to its high solvency power and ability to dissolve a wide range of drug compounds. It is also used as a carrier solvent in transdermal drug delivery systems and as a cleaning agent for equipment and facilities.
Key ingredients of NMP
The key materials for NMP production are BDO (Butane-1,4-diol) and methylamine. BDO is the largest cost component and accounts for almost 50% of the total. Through deoxidation process, BDO is converted to gamma-butyrolactone (GBL), then GBL is converted to N-alkyl-gamma-butyrolactone and reacted with methylamine to form NMP.
Market intelligence of NMP
The price of NMP is mainly affected by BDO. Generally, the BDO price is constantly changing, it can vary depending on factors like quantity demand of the market, production scale, energy costs and other factors like epidemic.
We have been following closely on the BDO price and keep our clients posted of the variation.
Our advantage on NMP supply
Our material is produced from the leading manufacturer in China, EP grade and Reach Certificate are available.
Both recycled liquid and fresh new liquid could be used for NMP production. We only use the fresh new liquid to make sure the NMP we supplied are high-quality.
Capacity is about 70 million of kgs each year.
