Which industries benefit from the use of dimethyl sulfoxide?

DMSO is used in a variety of industries including the chemical, pharmaceutical and agricultural industries . In the chemical industry it is used as a solvent for chemical reactions and as a cleaning agent. In the pharmaceutical industry it is used as a solvent for the production of drugs and other medications. In agriculture, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is often used as a solvent for pesticides and other chemical products to improve their effectiveness. Additionally, DMSO has been studied for its potential use in the medical field to treat various conditions such as inflammation, arthritis, and cystitis. However, more research is needed to determine the safety and effectiveness of using DMSO for these purposes.

What does the addition Ph. Eur. mean when buying dimethyl sulfoxide?

The “Ph.Eur.” refers to the European Pharmacopoeia, a reference work containing standards for the quality, safety and effectiveness of medicines in the European Union (EU). If a product has the addition “Ph. Eur.” carries, it means that it has been tested and meets the standards set by the European Pharmacopoeia.
In the case of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), this addition indicates that the product has been tested and meets the quality, safety and effectiveness standards of the European Pharmacopoeia . This could be useful information to consider when purchasing DMSO as it provides peace of mind that the product meets certain standards. However, it is important to note that the "Ph. Eur." Notation does not guarantee that a product is safe or effective for all uses. As always, it is important to consult a healthcare professional before using any product medically, including DMSO.

Why DMSO should not come into contact with certain plastics

Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is a solvent that can dissolve many different substances, including plastics. However, some plastics are sensitive to DMSO and can be attacked by the solvent. When DMSO comes into contact with these plastics, it can cause them to become porous, brittle or cracked.

It is important to note that not all plastics are sensitive to DMSO. Some plastics, such as polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and polyoxymethylene (POM), are resistant to DMSO and can come into contact with the solvent without any problems.
