DMF (Dimethylformamide) Production Cost Analysis 2021

Dimethylformamide OR DMF is an organic compound. This colourless liquid is soluble with water and majority of organic liquids. DMF is known to be a typical solvent for chemical reactions. DMF is odourless, but technical-grade or degraded samples can have a fishy smell simply because of the impurity of DMF. DMF degradation impurities can be eliminated or separated by sparging degraded samples with an inert gas like argon. Another way of doing so is by sonicating the samples under lower pressure. As its name indicates, it is a derivative of formamide, the amide of formic acid. DMF is a polar or hydrophilic aprotic solvent with a high boiling point. DMF facilitates reactions that follow cold mechanisms, such as SN2 reactions.

DMF is hydrolysed by strong acids as well as strong bases, especially at elevated temperatures. With sodium hydroxide, DMF converts to formate and dimethylamine. DMF undergoes decarbonylation near its boiling point to produce dimethylamine. In one of its primary uses in organic synthesis, DMF was a reagent in the Vilsmeier–Haack reaction, that is, utilised to formylate aromatic compounds.
