DMSO application used as a organic solvent

DMSO application used as a organic solvent

Dimethyl Sulfoxide ( DMSO ) is a highly safe aprotic polar solvent that dissolves most organis and inorganic compounds. Dimethyll Sulfide ( DMS), an intermediate raw material of DMSO, is a unique product  used in a variety of other fields.

Applications :
Removers and Cleaners
Thanks to both high dissolution properties and permeability, DMSO has extensive application as a remover and cleaner in a number of areas.
・Electronic component cleaners
・Plant cleaning agents
・Mold release solvents for motor parts molding

Other applications
Thanks to its outstanding dissolution properties and low toxicity, use of DMSO is not limited solely to the chemical industry.
・Polymerized yarn solvents
・Extracting solvents
・Dye and Pigment dissolving solvents

Agricultural Chemicals

There are two important applications for DMSO in the agrochemical sciences. DMSO is used as a reaction solvent to synthesize agricultural chemicals and as a solvent for the formulation of agrochemical actives.

Formulation: The powerful solvent properties of DMSO allow for high actives loading, resulting in highly concentrated formulations. DMSO is completed miscible in water and is naturally biodegradable.

DMSO is a useful liquid formulation solvent for Imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid insecticide. Imidiacloprid is thought to be the most widely used insecticide in the world (Yamamoto, Izuru (1999).

An important benefit offered by DMSO in agricultural chemical formulations is the ability to dissolve highly insoluble active ingredients. It provides an alternative to more hazardous dipolar aprotic solvents which are being regulated out of agrichemical applications – particularly N-Methyl Pyrollidone (NMP). To learn more about how DMSO is being used to replace NMP.

Examples of agrichemical ingredients which have good DMSO solubility are the imidazolinone herbicides imazethapyr and Imazamethabenz-methyl.
