Description of N-Methylformamide

N-Methylformamide (NMF) is a colorless, nearly odorless, organic compound with molecular formula CH3NHCHO, which is a liquid at room temperature. It is infinitely soluble in water. NMF is mainly used as a reagent in various organic syntheses with limited applications as a highly polar solvent.
NMF is closely related to other formamides, notably formamide and dimethylformamide (DMF). However, industrial use and production of NMF are far less than for either of these other formamides. DMF is favored over NMF as a solvent due to its greater stability. Annual production of NMF can be assumed to be significantly less than the production of either formamide (100,000 tons) or DMF (500,000 tons).

What is N-Methylformamide?

With the progress of science and technology and the development of society, chemical products have invariably permeated our daily lives, in medicine, food, cosmetics, electronics, industry, and other areas, becoming an essential part of our lives. One such product is N-Methylformamide which has developed particularly rapidly in recent years. Do you know about N-Methylformamide?


The official answer: N-dimethylformamide is a compound, the pure product is a colorless transparent viscous liquid with an ammonia odor. It can be miscible with water and ethanol and has hygroscopicity. It can be synthesized by the route of methylamine, methyl formate, ethyl formate, etc. It is an important solvent and intermediate of organic synthesis, used in the synthesis of pesticide insecticides such as monomethylformamide and amitraz, medicine, synthetic leather, artificial leather, etc.; and used as a solvent for chemical fiber textile, etc. The substance is toxic, flammable, and irritating.

What’s the application of N-Methylformamide?

The methylamine method is produced by reacting methylamine with carbon monoxide. 2. Methyl formate method is produced by reacting methyl formate with methylamine. 3. Ethyl formate is produced by reacting ethyl formate with methylamine. Add ethyl formate Chemicalbook to the reactor, add aqueous methylamine solution under cooling, and react at 40℃ at reflux. Then leave it for 3 d and recover the ethanol under reduced pressure to get the crude product. N-dimethylformamide is an important raw material for organic synthesis, used in the synthesis of pesticide insecticide and acaricide monomethylamidine and amitraz, also used in the production of pharmaceuticals, synthetic leather, artificial leather and used as a solvent for chemical fiber textile, etc. It is used as organic synthesis raw material for the synthesis of pesticide insecticide, medicine, synthetic leather, artificial leather, etc.; as well as used as chemical fiber textile solvent, etc. It is used in the synthesis of high efficiency and low toxicity pesticides such as monocrotaline and amitraz, used as the reaction solvent and refining solvent for organic synthesis, and widely used in medicine, dyestuff, spices, etc. It is an important organic chemical raw material and intermediate and is a kind of organic solvent with good performance. Used in the synthesis of highly efficient and low-toxic monomethyl amidine, dimethyl amidine, etc. It is used as a reaction solvent and refining solvent of organic synthesis. It is also widely used in medicine, dyestuff, spice and electrolysis, electroplating industry, etc.

Peter has been my partner for many years, we met at the Shanghai CPHI Fair in 2014, for the first time I didn't have much interest in Peter's products because our company had a stable supplier. Although we didn't work together, Peter would often send me important news and interesting trend information about the industry, so we became good friends, even though I didn't place any orders with him during this time, even if it was a sample order. In September 2016, our original supplier was unable to provide us with the quality and delivery guarantees we needed, so I first thought of Peter and his company. Until now, we have maintained a very good personal friendship in addition to a steady business relationship.

In all my years of sourcing from China, I first time to found that working with Sincere Chemical was so good, they helped me with all the production and delivery as well as a lot of technical expertise, which saved me a lot of time. When I first approached Peter for a quotation for Optical Brightener, he made me a detailed quotation with not only prices but also foreign trade details, company profile, company strengths, R&D capabilities, production capacity, packaging methods, raw material control, environmental protection, and much more. This information was a very important reference for me in making purchasing decisions. Sincere Chemical is a trustworthy supplier and I believe our business will grow from strength to strength!

Hi, I'm Kim, I'm Peter's partner and although I don't like him very much (because he never gives me more money for my prices, hahaha) I'm still willing to write him customer feedback. As an international buyer, I have to deal with a lot of things every day and my inbox is often full of development letters. It's a lot of junk and meaningless pleasantries, which I don't like that much, but Peter's emails always give me a better understanding of the product and the industry. I am also very pleased with his work ethic, and I am very happy with his work every time I work with him, not only in providing quotations but also in facilitating all the details of my work so that I can concentrate more on other things, so he is the best supplier for me. Although his prices are not the lowest among all suppliers, his products give me the greatest peace of mind.
