Working with Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) is straightforward when you have a strong understanding of its physical properties. DMSO is less volatile than many organic solvents and its nearly universal solvent properties should be considered in designing a reaction workup strategy.
Gaylord Chemical has extensive experience in working with DMSO and we are here to help address any challenges as you seek to isolate and purify chemical products from DMSO-based media.
Below is a process flow chart for DMSO isolation and purification that provides a simple strategy for workup of DMSO-containing reaction mixtures. Feel free to contact us from the links at the bottom of the page if we can be of assistance with any of your challenges.
