Dimethyl sulfoxide product description

Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is a sulfur-containing organic compound. It is a colorless and odorless transparent liquid at room temperature. It is a hygroscopic flammable liquid. It has the characteristics of high polarity, high boiling point, good thermal stability, aprotic and miscible with water. It can be soluble in most organic substances such as ethanol, propanol, benzene and chloroform. It is known as "universal solvent". Heating in the presence of acid will produce a small amount of methyl mercaptan, formaldehyde, dimethyl sulfur, methanesulfonic acid and other compounds. It decomposes under high temperature. It can react violently with chlorine and burn in the air to send out a light blue flame. It can be used as organic solvent, reaction medium and intermediate of organic synthesis. It can also be used as dyeing solvent, dye remover, dyeing carrier of synthetic fibers and absorbent for recycling acetylene and sulfur dioxide.
