About NMP, 1-Methyl-2-Pyrrolidone, ACS Grade

NMP has strong organic/inorganic compound solvency, is miscible with water at all temperatures, and has excellent chemical and thermal stability. It is a colorless liquid, although impure samples can appear yellow. Due to its polar nature and low surface tension, it is widely employed as a cleaning agent
