General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. Dimethyl isosorbide (DMI) is a biobased greener solvent and thus it aligns with "Use of Renewable Feedstocks" and "Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries". Click here for more information. Dimethyl isosorbide (DMI) is a sustainable alternative to dipolar aprotic solvents such as NMP and DMF, suitable for organic synthesis, as Baylis-Hillman reaction, and due to its high solubilization capacity when used as co-solvent for nonpolar drugs, make it an interesting compound for pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries as well.

Application

Dimethyl isosorbide may be used as an alternative solvent to NMP and/or DMF in some applications:
  • Polymer membranes preparation
  • Solvent in Baylis-Hillman reactions
  • Co-solvent to improve solubility of nonpolar compounds
  • Potential substitutes to short-chain glycol ethers

Features and Benefits

  • Bio-based
  • Made from Renewable Resource - straw
  • Non-toxic solvent
  • High solubility potential
  • High boiling point
