DMSO ACS Spectrophotometric Grade


The Perfect Choice for the Laboratory

DMSO ACS Spectrophotometric Grade is Dimethyl Sulfoxide which conforms to the American Chemical Society’s (ACS) 9th Edition Specifications for Reagent Chemicals.

In addition to the normal parameters related to purity, this monograph specifies maximum UV absorbance at five wavelengths. This grade is the preferred solvent for any form of UV spectrophotometric analysis, due to its guaranteed analytical clarity.

Select DMSO ACS Spectrophotometric Grade as:


HPLC Mobile Phase Component

The low UV limits of DMSO ACS Spectrophotometric Grade result in minimal interference when using UV detectors in HPLC. The polarity of DMSO can be used to modify the solvent strength of HPLC eluent in reverse phase mode. Applications in Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) also exist.

General Purpose Analysis Solvent

The nearly universal solvent properties of DMSO allow it to effectively dissolve difficult materials, including many polymers and inorganic materials. DMSO ACS Spectrophotometric Grade is suitable for general UV and visible spectrophotometry, IR spectroscopy, and all methods that demand solvent purity and low levels of UV absorbance.

Solvent for High Throughput Screening and Compound Storage

High purity, low moisture content and consistent UV absorbance, along with the ability to readily dissolve a wide range of compounds, make this grade ideal for compound storage applications.
