Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO)

Product range

Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) is a highly polar and water miscible organic liquid, with an exceptionaly low level of toxicity. Arkema has developed a broad range of DMSO grades in order to meet customer specific needs.

Due to its low toxicity, DMSO is a substitute solvent for other toxic polar aprotic solvents such as NMP (N-methyl pyrrolidone), DMF (dimethyl formamide) or DMAc (dimethyl acetamide).
