5Liter GBL / Gamma Butyrolactone CAS: 96-48-0

GBL is rapidly converted into GHB by paraoxonase ( lactonase ) enzymes, found in the blood. Animals which lack these enzymes exhibit no effect from GBL. GBL is more lipophilic ( fat soluble ) than GHB, and so is absorbed faster and has higher bioavailability.

GBL Applications:

GBL γ-Butyrolactone (GBL) is a hygroscopic colorless liquid with a weak characteristic odor. Soluble in water, GBL is a commonsolvent and reagent in chemistry as well as being used as a flavouring, as a cleaning solvent, as a superglue remover, and as asolvent in some wet aluminium electrolytic capacitors. In humans it acts as a prodrug for γ-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), and it is used as a recreational intoxicant with effects similar to alcohol.

1) Used to produce a-pyrrolidone, 1-Methyl-2-pyrrolidinone, polyvinyl pyrrolidone, and α -Acetyl-γ –


2) used as anaesthetic and tranquilizer, used to produce ciprofloxacin and interferon, as the intermediate of vitamin and rolicyprine;

3) As antioxidant, plasticizer, extractant, adsorbent, dispersant, fixative and curing agent;

4) Used in battery, capacitor and development of color film.
