With the increased concern for the depletion of fossil fuels and non-renewable resources, a new pathway has been developed to produce N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone. Bio-based N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone is produced by the cyclization of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) to 2-pyrrolidone and subsequent methylation of 2- pyrrolidone with methanol to N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone.

GABA used in the production is obtained from glutamic acid. Glutamic acid is an amino acid that can be extracted from plant proteins.

In the procedure to obtain N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone, methanol acted as a methylating agent and ammonium bromide, a halogen salt, acted as a catalyst.

Major key players in the global N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone market: Ashland, BASF, Eastman Chemical Company, DowDuPont, LyondellBasell Industries Holdings, and Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation
