Why do they put it in cigarettes?[edit]

"Its use or purpose, however, is unknown, like most cigarette additives."

I don't think that's true; I think they use it for a well-known reason. Anyone know what it is? —Keenan Pepper 18:52, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

I think it was listed on their list of additives because it happened to be present in some oil or other that they use. The reference given is hardly NPOV. I would be amazed if pyrrole were not present in cigarette smoke or in cigarettes themselves, but as it stands the paragraph is not particularly helpful. Physchim62 (talk) 13:34, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
Oh, so it's not actually added on purpose, it just sneaks in there. Should we just remove that bit from the article, or what? —Keenan Pepper 19:29, 28 July 2006 (UTC)


I have reorganized the article a bit and have tried to add enough detailed reaction information to be useful but not so much as to require the reader to be a heterocyclic chemist. Any comments?

Also, I too take issue with the cigarette smoke comment. Perhaps we can at least add enough other "uses" to not have this remark stand out so much? Shultzc 00:37, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Isn't it also used to make paint? Pyrrole red and scarlet? 21:23, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Pyrrole Red[edit]

This stuff is used as a pigment in acrylics, amirite? (Momus (talk) 21:15, 4 November 2008 (UTC))


There is a mistake - the product is 1-Benzoyl-3,4-dimethylpyrrole not the diethyl derivative (as shown). --FK1954 (talk) 20:30, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Moderately Acid?

Blacklisted Links Found on Pyrrole[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected links on Pyrrole which have been added to the blacklist, either globally or locally. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed or are highly inappropriate for Wikipedia. The addition will be logged at one of these locations: local or global If you believe the specific link should be exempt from the blacklist, you may request that it is white-listed. Alternatively, you may request that the link is removed from or altered on the blacklist locally or globally. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. Please do not remove the tag until the issue is resolved. You may set the invisible parameter to "true" whilst requests to white-list are being processed. Should you require any help with this process, please ask at the help desk.
