Dimethyl formamide (DMF) process Johnson Matthey

Dimethyl formamide (DMF) is a solvent with a low evaporation rate, primarily used in producing acrylic fibres and plastics.  It is also used in pharmaceuticals, the production of pesticides and the manufacture of adhesives, synthetic leathers, fibres, films and surface coatings.

Johnson Matthey offers the DAVY dimethyl formamide process, which produces DMF by reacting dimethylamine with carbon monoxide in the presence of a catalyst at low temperatures and pressures.
