Dimethyl Sulfate (DMS) is a diester of methanol and sulfuric acid, is mainly used as a strong methylating agent in organic synthesis. Dimethyl sulfate is a colorless oily liquid with a slight onion-like odor and is soluble in aromatic solvents, water, and alcohol. It has its applications in personal care, pharmaceutical and in chemical industry. It is mainly used in manufacturing drugs, perfumes, water treatment chemicals, surfactants, pesticides, softeners, dyes, fabric, and photographic chemicals etc. DMS also used in separation of mineral oils and under certain conditions, it is used as a solvent, catalyst, stabilizer and sulfonating agent. Dimethyl sulfate acts as a reagent for methylation of amines, thiols, and phenols. Due to its cost effectiveness and high reactivity DMS has greater applications compared to other methylating agents.
Global demand for dimethyl sulfate market is estimated to experience strong growth, due to its wide variety of applications across industries. An increase in demand for products which use DMS, as in fabric industry it used in manufacture of fabric softeners, in dye industries used in manufacture of various dyes and in pharmaceutical research industries, it acts as an intermediate chemical. DMS is also used in perfume, agriculture and various chemical manufacturing industries.
