N-Ethyl pyrrolidinone imparts penetrant properties on printing media such as plain office paper when present in ink jet inks. Because of its mild penetrant properties, concentrations of about 20 percent by weight were needed to achieve rapid penetration on papers such as Xerox@ Image Series Elite and to achieve medium penetration on papers such as Courtland 4024DP felt.
