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.

Gamma-butyrolactone, a.k.a. GBL, is a colorless odorless transparent liquid free of suspended substance. Our GBL 99 contains Gamma Butyrolactone of the best quality.

GBL Applications:
1) Used to produce a-pyrrolidone, 1-Methyl-2-pyrrolidinone, polyvinyl pyrrolidone, and a -Acetyl-r -butyrolactone;
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.

Despite serious safety concerns and illegality, people take gamma butyrolactone for improving athletic performance, sleep, and sexual performance and pleasure. They also take it for relieving depression and stress, prolonging life, promoting clear thinking, causing relaxation, and releasing growth hormone. GBL is also used to trim fat and as a body- or muscle-builder. Some people take it as a recreational drug.

GBL is converted to GHB shortly after entering the body. Both produce a feeling of euphoria and can reduce inhibitions and cause sleepiness.
Gamma butyrolactone is a chemical. People use it as medicine. Be careful not to confuse gamma butyrolactone (GBL) with gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB).
Gamma-Butyrolactone + NaOH => Sodium Gamma-Hydroxy Butyrate (Na-GHB)
