General description

Certified pharmaceutical secondary standards for application in quality control provide pharma laboratories and manufacturers with a convenient and cost-effective alternative to pharmacopeia primary standards.
Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) is an amphipathic molecule and contains both highly polar and apolar groups, making it an efficient solvent as it can dissolve in both aqueous and organic solvents. It has its therapeutic use in the treatment of a variety of human conditions such as brain edema, amyloidosis, interstitial cystitis, and schizophrenia. It is a commonly used solvent for hydrophobic pharmaceutical agents, exhibiting effective hydroxyl radical scavenging ability. Commercially it is produced by oxidation of dimethylsulfide (DMS) with dinitrogen tetroxide. It is a component of a wide variety of foodstuffs and beverages.
