γ-Butyrolactone (GBL) is a hygroscopic colorless, water-miscible liquid with a weak characteristic odor. It is the simplest 4-carbon lactone. It is mainly used as an intermediate in the production of other chemicals, e.g., methyl-2-pyrrolidone. In humans GBL acts as a prodrug for γ-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), and it is used as a recreational CNS depressant with effects like those of barbiturates.
γ-Butyrolactone is produced industrially by dehydrogenation of 1,4-butanediol at a temperature of 180–300 °C and atmospheric pressure in the presence of a copper catalyst.

Pyrophosphoryl chloride is colourless to pale yellow liquid, reasonably easy to handle. It reacts violently with water & miscible with most organic solvents.
It is used in pharmaceutical and other organic synthesis, as laser materials and electronic components.
Benzilic acid ethyl ester is an oil organic liquid. Its reactivity is attributed to the presence of the hydroxyl group at alpha-position to the carboxylic acid group and hence it participates in various reactions leading to value-added intermediates and APIs.
Dibutyltin laurate is an organotin compound with oily appearance. The lauric acid ester is used in various industrial applications as catalyst.
Pyridine hydrobromide is a white to off-white hygroscopic crystalline solid with melting point/freezing point of 216 °C to 219 °C. It is miscible in water. It used in many chemical synthesis studies.
Chrysanthemic acid is a cyclic organic compound. The product occurs naturally in its ester form in pyrethrum flowers. It is also found as metabolite of pyrenthrins. The acid carries a sweet odor thereby enabling its uses in flavors and is used to synthesize agrochemicals as well.
Propionic Anhydride is a colorless liquid having a pungent odor and high boiling point. It is miscible with most organic solvents. It is soluble in both water and alcohol. It is a widely used reagent in organic synthesis as well as for producing specialty derivatives of cellulose.
2-Cyclohexene-1-one is an organic intermediate used in synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and fragrances. It is a ketone, or more precisely, an enone.
It is an alkaloid used in the symptomatic relief of pain in attacks of gouty arthritis, pseudogout, sarcodial arthritis, calcific tendinitis and to treat the inflammatory symptoms of Familial Mediterranean Fever.
It appears as odourless or nearly odourless pale yellow needles or powder that darkens on exposure to light.
