INTRODUCTION

1,3-Dimethyl-2-imidazolidinone, popular as DMI solvent, is a high boiling aprotic polar molecule. Apart from being a common solvent in derivative GC, it finds applications in diverse industrial verticals.

Manufacture
The solvent is produced on large scale from ethylenediamine in a multi-step synthesis that also consumes urea, methyl trioctyl ammonium chloride, and dimethyl sulphate as key raw materials.

SynonymsN,N’-Dimethylethyleneurea
Dimethylimidazolidionone
CAS no.80-73-9
EINECS no.201-304-8
Molecular formulaC5H10N2O
Molecular weight114.15
Structure

Applications

DMI solvent is used in synthesis of:
Mirabegron, a drug that eases symptoms of overactive bladder
Itraconazole, an anti-fungal API
Donepezil, an API to improve memory and awareness in Alzheimer patients
Pigment Blue 60
4-Chloro-1-benzothiophene
2-Fluoro-5-bromobenzonitrile
1,2-Bis(trimethylsilyl)benzene
