N-Ethyl-2-Pyrrolidone, commonly referred to as NEP, is a highly polar aprotic solvent having a chemical structure C6H11NO. The chemical, depending on the application, is used either as a catalyst or a surfactant or as a solvent. This highly stable weak alkaline organic solvent exhibits complete miscibility in water and is soluble in organic solvents. Moreover, N-Ethyl-2-Pyrrolidone is a colourless to yellow liquid characterized by an amine like odour and is used in certain chemical reactions involving hydrolysis, condensation, polymerization among others. NEP often finds application as a substitute for N-Methyl-2-Pyrrolidone (NMP) which is used on a wider scale across diverse industries. NEP is consumed by diverse industries such as paints & coatings, industrial cleaners, petrochemical processing, desulfurization of gases, among others.
