Dimethylformamide DMF CAS 68-12-2 is an organic compound with the formula (CH3)2NC(O)H. Commonly abbreviated as DMF, this colourless liquid is miscible with water, ether,ester,ketone,chlorinated hydrocarbon and benzene hydrocarbon,hygroscopic.etc and the majority of organic liquids. N,N-Dimethylformamide DMF is a common solvent for chemical reactions. Dimethylformamide is odorless whereas technical grade or the degraded often have a fishy smell due to impurity of dimethylamine. N,N-Dimethylformamide DMF is a polar (hydrophilic) aprotic solvent with a high boiling point.
