Product Data Sheet
Since the early 1960s, many important pharmaceutical uses for DMSO have been found, as well as applications in an impressive range of industries including agricultural, polymer, coating and inks, electronic, compounding, catalyst sulfiding, and precision cleaning. Despite many exciting applications, DMSO is still underutilized relative to less powerful and more toxic solvents such as acetonitrile, N, N-dimethylformamide (DMF) and dimethylacetamide. Thus, it appears likely that the unrealized potential uses of DMSO are enormous. Most chemists have a handful of favorite solvents. When these solvents fail to perform, they investigate less common solvents and may find DMSO. Considering the guidelines for solvent selection, however, rational solvent choice should lead to DMSO as the preferred solvent far more frequently.
is a Pharma Solvent grade of Dimethyl Sulfoxide, suitable for use in common industrial formulations (such as solvent cleaning
applications and paint stripping). This aprotic solvent plays an important role in the synthesis and processing of polymers, including polyacrylonitrile
(PAN) and polyethersulfone (PES).
The dimethyl sulfoxide is produced from lignin, a renewable, three dimensional biomaterial,
and is recyclable. Additionally, DMSO is among the safest solvents known today.
Choose DMSO for:
General Solvent Cleaning Applications. DMSO is an effective solvent
for removing organic materials from equipment lines and manufacturing
equipment. DMSO exhibits high solubility for many polymers, and may
aid in polymer processing and clean-up.
Environmentally Friendly Formulated Products. Some examples
include paint stripping formulations and nontoxic antifreeze mixtures.
Chemical Processes. Industrial grade DMSO enables manufacturing
and processing of polymer products.
