Molecule Structure Image



Polyvinylpyrrolidone is a water-soluble polymer made from the monomer N-vinylpyrrolidone. It was used as a blood plasma expander. It is used as a binder in many pharmaceutical tablets. It is also used as additive for batteries, ceramics, fiberglass, inks, inkjet paper and in the chemical-mechanical planarization process, use in aqueous metal quenching, for production of membranes, such as dialysis and water purification filters.
