Dimethyl Formamide

Dimethylformamide is an organic compound represented by the chemical formula (CH3)2NC(O)H. It is frequently abbreviated as DMF, although this abbreviation is occasionally employed for dimethylfuran or dimethyl fumarate. This clear liquid is capable of mixing with water and most organic solvents. DMF is a widely used solvent in chemical reactions. While dimethylformamide itself lacks an odor, technical-grade or degraded samples may emit a fishy scent due to the presence of dimethylamine impurities.
