Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO)

DMSO is a highly polar solvent having a high boiling point and strong affinity for water. DMSO is used as an accelerant or expedient in some systemic preserving applications. It is generally used in place of a surfactant.

Usage - Typical use rate is 2-3.5% of the preserving mixture. DMSO has a very low toxicity, having an LD50 that is one-fourth that of glycerine. DMSO is also an ideal solvent for liquefying basic (immersion) dyes before adding to the dyebath.
