    There seems to be the common idea that companies have begun "denaturing" GBL to eliminate its abuse potential.

    Now mixing other solvents or NMP seems obvious but several people have
    said that even if you boil off the other solvents like a certain polish
    remover that has GBL and acetone it is impossible to feel effects from
    the GBL or use it in a synthesis.

    Whats going on here? I find it hard to believe that chemical companies
    have found a way to make non-fun GBL,but its a popular idea on the

    Does anyone have any hard facts regarding the oft-repeated rumours of denatured GBL?

    Personally I can't see the logic.

    The GBL manufacturers have no desire to a) add more, costly, processes to produce a substance that b) would then affect the way in which their GBL is utilised in industry thus risk losing their customer base to manufacturers who have "proper" GBL on offer.

    So then the theory is that the suppliers and distributors of GBL would then be charged with introducing the additive. Not likely given that the rule for the manufacturer also applies to distributors of GBL to end users.
