Chemical | N,N-Dimethylformamide (DMF) – The Universal Solvent

Dimethylformamide is a solvent used in a variety of applications and industries where it is important to monitor its quality. Anton Paar Abbemat Refractometers provide fast and reliable measurement results where precise concentration determination is required.

Dimethylformamide is a colorless, polar and organic compound with the formula C3H7NO, abbreviated as DMF. It is miscible in all proportions with water and is soluble in the majority of organic liquids. Consequently, it serves as an excellent universal solvent for a variety of substances in all aggregation states.
DMF finds its application in the processing of agricultural chemicals, fibers, oil or gas, polymers, process solvents, refining and textiles.In the industry it is used as intermediate for the manufacturing of other substances and as a catalyst in synthesis reaction.
Furthermore, there is a continuously increasing demand on DMF from industries manufacturing drugs, acrylic fibers and printed circuit boards (PCB’s) as well. Based on the application’s requirements different grades of the solvent are used. Quality control by means of an Anton Paar Abbemat refractometer is not only very time efficient but also very straightforward. Whenever quick and reliable concentration measurements are necessary the Abbemat refractometer series offers the perfect solution. Solvent concentration measurement by refractometry is a quick and cost-efficient alternative to more complex techniques like gas or liquid chromatography.
