Eastman | Dimethylformamide (DMF)

Product Availability Check with local Sales Office to determine exact availability by country. Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis. DMF is used in the production of acrylic fibers and plastics. Those aliphatics are used in lube oils. The product is known as a universal solvent. Dimethylformamide is odorless whereas technical grade or degraded samples often have a fishy smell due to impurity of dimethylamine.

HHHHH Product Description Dimethylformamide DMF is a clear, colorless, hygroscopic liquid with a slight amine odor.

It dijethylformamide reactions that follow polar mechanisms, such as S N 2 reactions. DMF undergoes decarbonylation near its boiling point to give dimethylamine. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


Hepatotoxins Formamides Amide solvents. Spectral Database for Organic Compounds. DMF is prepared by combining methyl formate and dimethylamine or by reaction of dimethylamine with carbon monoxide. Views Read Dimethylformwmide View history. Annals of Internal Medicine. Another significant application is the use of DMF as a solvent for polyurethane-based coatings on leather and artificial leather fabrics.


Substitution is permitted on the —NH 2 group. This high solubility of inorganic substances also leads to the application of DMF in the production of high voltage capacitors. The acute LD50 oral, rats and mice is 2. 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.

As its name indicates, it is a derivative of formamidethe amide of dimethylformamidr acid. It is also used as a solvent in peptide coupling for pharmaceuticals, in the development and production of pesticidesand in the manufacture of adhesivessynthetic leathersfibers, films, and surface coatings.

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.

NN -Dimethylformamide [2]. LC 50 median concentration. It is frequently used for chemical reactions and other applications, which require a high solvency power.

Also the spinning of polyurethane based elastomers is performed from DMF based solutions. DMF is also used as industrial paint stripper. On a pilot plant scale, on the other hand, several accidents have been reported.

The primary use of DMF is as a solvent with low evaporation rate. On a laboratory scale any thermal runaway is usually quickly noticed and brought under control with an ice bath and this remains a popular combination of reagents.
