Miscible with water and most organic solvents.


N, N-Dimethylformamide is commonly used as a solvent. It is used as a reagent in Bouveault aldehyde synthesis and also in Vilsmeier-Haack reaction. It acts as a catalyst in the synthesis of acyl chlorides. It is used for separating and refining crude from olefin gas. DMF along with methylene chloride acts as a remover of varnish or lacquers. It is also used in the manufacture of adhesives, fibers and films.


Reaction with sodium hydride gives exothermic decomposition at low temperatures. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.

Dipolar aprotic solvent, in which anions have enhanced nucleophilicity, compare Dimethyl­ sulfoxide, A13280. Effective solvent for a vast range of reactions.

CAUTION! Thermal runaway reactions can occur with NaH; see Sodium hydride, 13431.

In combination with POCl3, (COCl)2, etc., generates an iminium chloride intermediate for the formylation of reactive aromatic nuclei by the Vilsmeier reaction:

Giles, CRC Press, Boca Raton, FL (1994). Formylation can be extended to less active substrates, e.g. acenaphthene or mesitylene, with the DMF-triflic anhydride reagent: J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 1571 (1990). Under Vilsmeier conditions, electron-rich alkenes can be converted to ɑß-unsaturated aldehydes; see, e.g.: Synthesis, 752 (1976); and ketones to ß-chloroenals: Synthesis, 496 (1985); Org. Synth. Coll., 5, 215 (1973).

Vilsmeier conditions also promote dehydrations, e.g. in cyclodehydration of hydroxyphenols to give cyclic ethers, as an efficient alternative to the Mitsunobu reaction: J. Chem. Soc., Perkin 1, 2249 (1996); J. Org. Chem., 59, 4346 (1994):

DMF can also be used for formylation with alkyllithium or Grignard reagents: Synthesis, 228 (1984).

In aqueous DMF, tosylate esters undergo formolysis to formate esters: Synth. Commun., 26, 1031 (1996).
