Replacing NMP: Are You Ready?

Replacing NMP: Are You Ready?

NMP is an abbreviation for N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (other synonyms are 1-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone and 1-Methyl-2-pyrrolidinone) (Figure 1). NMP has proven itself as an effective and versatile cleaning agent, removing photoresist residue while leaving the surface in good shape for processing steps downstream. However, its time may be short-lived as companies strive to meet environmental health and safet... »
