Order (GBL) online (GBL) is a colorless hygroscopic water-mixable fluid of low odour. It is 4-carbon lactone the simplest. In humans, GBL acts like a pro drug for α-hydroxybutyric acid () and as a recreational CNS depressant with effects
How is GBL made?
Extracts of GBL from unadulterated wine samples were found. This finding shows that in some wines GBL is naturally present and can be found in similar products. The detection concentration was about 5 μg/mL and was easily followed by a GC/MS analysis with a simple removal technique. In cheese-flavors, GBL can be found, but in general, the final food is 0.0002% GBL. GBL.
Del hydrogenation of 1,4-butanediol at 180-300 ° C, atmospheric pressure in the presence of copper catalyst, produces α-Butyrolactone industrially. The return of this process is about 95%. Cleansing takes place by extracting the liquid gas phase. The oxidation of tetrahydrofuran, such as aqueous sodium bromate, can also be achieved in the laboratory. GABA uses the Sandmen reaction as an alternative route.
