  • N,N-dimethylformamide, short DMF
  • common laboratory solvent for chemicals insoluble in water, e.g. X-Gal
  • toxic and possible carcinogenic
  • melting temperature -61°C
  • If mixed with tricholoroisocyanuric acid, compound will degrade "stoichiometrically the hydrolysis of N-benzylformamide (an N-substituted formamide) to benzylamine and formate", thus a potential substrate for isocyanide convertible synthesis. [1]
