Important Raw Materials and Intermediates. Polymers like polyvinylchloride, vinylchloride- vinylacetate copolymers and some polyamides are also readily dissolved in DMF. Hepatotoxins Formamides Amide solvents. DMF is a polar hydrophilic aprotic mds with a high boiling point.

The high solubility of polyacrylonitrile in DMF, together with the good miscibility of DMF in water makes DMF the preferred solvent for the production of acrylic fibers. With sodium hydroxideDMF converts to formate and dimethylamine.

Substitution is permitted on the —NH 2 group. Contact Us Customer Center.

Dimethylformamide – Wikipedia

DMF is used in the production of acrylic fibers and plastics. Spectral Database for Organic Compounds.


DMF is hydrolyzed by strong acids and bases, especially at elevated temperatures. Resources Active, excipient, and intermediate ingredients dimethylforrmamide pharmaceuticals Eastman ingredients for pharmaceuticals. This high solubility of inorganic substances also leads to the application of DMF in the production of high voltage capacitors. DMF undergoes decarbonylation near its boiling point to give dimethylamine. LC 50 median concentration. If a country is not listed for a region, contact Eastman for further information.

Return to previous page. In the petrochemical industry DMF is used for the purification of dimethylformammide from ethylene and butadiene from C4 streams. Also for the separation of aromatics, which can be easily dissolved by DMF from aliphatic hydrocarbons. Product Availability Check with local Msdz Office to determine exact availability by country. DMF is prepared by combining methyl formate and dimethylamine or by reaction of dimethylamine with carbon monoxide.

DMF was first prepared in by the French chemist Albert Verley 8 January — 27 Novemberby distilling a mixture of dimethylamine hydrochloride and potassium formate.

Dimethylformamide is odorless whereas technical grade or degraded samples often have a fishy smell due to impurity of dimethylamine. It is frequently used for chemical reactions and other applications, which require a high solvency power.


On a pilot plant scale, on the other hand, several accidents have mses reported.

The product is known as a universal solvent. LC Lo lowest published. In Trost, Barry M. You may be trying to access this site from a secured browser on the server. Inorganic and rimethylformamide based residual fluxes are highly soluble in DMF; therefore this solvent is used as a cleaner, for instance to clean hot-dip tinned parts.

Due to the high solubility of SO 2 in DMF, exhaust combustion streams from high sulfur containing fuels can be purified with CO 2 being recovered.

DMF is also used as carrier dimethylformamids inks and dyes in various printing and fiber-dying applications.


Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis. London, ; pp 35— Orders subjected to minimum order quantity. Retrieved from ” https: The primary use of DMF is as a solvent with low evaporation rate.

DMF is miscible with water. A new method for the preparation of secondary and tertiary dimetyhlformamide -alkylamino-benzaldehyde].
