Applications

N-Methylformamide is used to prepare methyl isocyanate. It is used as an extraction solvent for aromatic hydrocarbons and acts as a ligand in coordination chemistry. It is employed as a solvent in oil refineries and in aluminum electrolytic capacitors. Further, it is used as a reagent in organic synthesis. In addition to this, it is used as an investigational anticancer drug and an intermediate in the production of some pharmaceutical compounds.

Notes

Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, acids, bases and acid chlorides.
