Specifications

Dimethylformamide is a colorless to yellow liquid with a faint, specific amine-like odor. It is miscible with water.

Description

Dimethylformamide (DMF) is a colorless, high-boiling, mobile, polar liquid

with a faint, characteristic odor. It does not decompose on distillation and is

freely miscible with water, alcohols, ethers, ketones, esters, carbon disulfide and chlorinated and aromatic hydrocarbons. It is either immiscible or only partly miscible with aliphatic hydrocarbons. Even at elevated

temperatures, aqueous solutions of DMF have very little tendency to hydrolyze. However the addition of acids or bases accelerate hydrolysis to formic acid and 1,3-dimethylamine. DMF is an aprotic solvent with a high dielectric constant.

 

Applications

The high solvent power of dimethylformamide can be ascribed to its

molecular structure. DMF is an eminently suitable solvent for salts or

compounds with a high molecular weight owing to the combined action

of its small molecule, its high dielectric constant, its electron donor properties, and its ability to form complexes.
