Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP)

Colorless, water-soluble, crystalline polymer powder.

Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) is a water-soluble polymer used in pharmaceuticals, personal care, and food processing. It forms clear solutions, with excellent film-forming, binding, and stabilizing properties. Widely used in tablets, cosmetics, and topical formulations.

Energy Sector

Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) is used in the energy sector for applications such as enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and drilling fluids. It can act as a stabilizer, rheology modifier, and emulsifying agent in EOR processes. PVP-based drilling fluids can improve wellbore stability and reduce fluid loss. PVP is also used as a lubricant and binder in solid propellant formulations for rockets and explosives, as well as in fuel cells for its high ion conductivity and electrochemical stability properties.


Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) is utilized in agriculture as a plant protection agent, enhancing the efficacy of pesticides as a film-forming and dispersing agent. It improves pesticide adherence, distribution, and seed coating for better plant protection, germination, and growth. PVP’s versatility and effectiveness make it a valuable ingredient in agricultural formulations, helping to improve crop yields and plant health.


Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a versatile excipient. It acts as a binder, solubilizer, and stabilizer in drug formulations, enhancing drug solubility, bioavailability, and stability. PVP is also used as a coating agent for tablets and capsules, providing improved appearance, dissolution, and drug release. Its high safety profile, biocompatibility, and ease of use make PVP a popular choice in pharmaceutical formulations for improving drug performance and patient outcomes.
