Chemical Properties

colourless liquid with a faint ammonia odour


ChEBI: A member of the class of acetamides that is acetamide in which the hydrogens attached to the N atom have been replaced by two methyl groups respectively. Metabolite observed in cancer metabolism.


Solvent for many organic reactions and in industrial applications.

Production Methods

Dimethylacetamide has been produced by the reaction of acetic acid with dimethylamine (Siegle, 1980).

Production Methods

Dimethylacetamide is manufactured from acetic acid and dimethylamine in a closed system.

General Description

A clear colorless liquid with a faint odor similar to ammonia. About the same density as water. Flash point 145°F. Vapors heavier than air. May by toxic by skin absorption. May irritate eyes and skin.

Air & Water Reactions

Water soluble.

Reactivity Profile

N,N-Dimethylacetamide is an amide. Incompatible with oxidizing agents and halogenated compounds. Exothermic reactions occur with carbon tetrachloride and hexachlorocyclohexane. N,N-Dimethylacetamide can react violently in the presence of iron. Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Emits carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides, and dimethylamine when heated to decomposition.

Health Hazard

Liquid causes mild irritation of eyes and skin. Ingestion causes depression, lethargy, confusion and disorientation, visual and auditory hallucinations, perceptual distortions, delusions, emotional detachment, and affective blunting.

Health Hazard

A study of 41 workers who had been exposed to dimethylacetamide from 2 to 10 years revealed the occurrence of disorders reflecting liver damage (Corsi, 1971). Retention of bromosulfophthalein was increased in 9 of 10 workers who had been exposed to dimethylacetamide for 7 to 10 years, and in 10 of 20 workers who had been exposed to dimethylacetamide for 2 to 7 years. Other parameters of hepatic function which were altered in the exposed individuals include proteinemia, cholesterolemia, activities of hepatic transaminases and alkaline phosphatase in serum, and bilirubinemia. Hepatomegaly was diagnosed in 14 workers.
In a clinical trial, dimethylacetamide was administered to patients with advanced malignancies and caused abnormal mental states (Weiss et al 1962a, b). This effect was observed at a dose of 400 mg/kg given daily for 3 or more days.
The symptoms were not seen at 300 mg/kg or lower. The second or third dose caused depression, lethargy, occasional confusion or disorientation. The fourth or fifth dose produced striking hallucinations, perceptual distortions and delusions in all nine patients. All patients reverted to normal several days after discontinuation of treatment with dimethylacetamide.

Fire Hazard

N,N-Dimethylacetamide is combustible.

Pharmaceutical Applications

Dimethylacetamide is used as a solvent in oral and injectable pharmaceutical formulations. It has been used as a cosolvent to solubilize poorly soluble drugs. The use of dimethylacetamide has also been investigated as a vehicle for the parenteral delivery of relatively small peptides.
The use of solvents such as dimethylacetamide has been shown to influence the size and rate of release of norfloxacin from nanoparticles.
Dimethylacetamide has also been used in topical formulations and has been evaluated as a permeation enhancer for transdermal drug delivery.

Industrial uses

Dimethylacetamide is a powerful industrial solvent, the uses of which are very similar to those of dimethylformamide (Siegle, 1980). Its strong solvent action renders it particularly useful in the manufacture of films and fibers and as a solvent for polyacrylonitrile, polyvinyl chloride, polyamides, cellulose derivatives and polystyrenes and in coatings and adhesive formulations. Dimethylacetamide dissolves many inorganic salts.

Safety Profile

Moderately toxic by skin contact, inhalation, intravenous, and intraperitoneal routes. Mildly toxic by ingestion. Experimental teratogenic and reproductive effects. A skin and eye irritant. Less toxic than dimethylformamide. Mutation data reported. Combustible when exposed to heat and flame. A moderate explosion hazard. Violent reaction with halogenated compounds (e.g., carbon tetrachloride, hexachlorocyclohexane) when heated above 9OOC. Iron powder catalyzes the reaction so that it initiates at 71OC. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx


Dimethylacetamide is used in pharmaceutical preparations as a solvent in parenteral formulations and is generally regarded as a nontoxic material when used as an excipient. Animal toxicity studies indicate that dimethylacetamide is readily absorbed into the bloodstream following inhalation or topical application. Repeated exposure to dimethylacetamide may be harmful and can result in liver damage. High intravenous doses (>400mg/kg/day for 3 days) may be hallucinogenic.
LD50 (rabbit, SC): 9.6g/kg(11) LD50 (rat, IP): 2.75g/kg LD50 (rat, IV): 2.64g/kg LD50 (rat, oral): 4.93g/kg LD50 (mouse, inhalation): 7.2g/kg LD50 (mouse, IP): 2.8g/kg


Gas Chromatographie analysis of the urine of rats which had received dimethylacetamide by the subcutaneous route indicated the presence of N-methyl-acetamide and acetamide (Barnes and Ranta, 1972). Both metabolites were also found by the same authors in incubation mixtures of dimethylacetamide with rat liver homogenate. N-Methylacetamide was detected in the urine of human volunteers who had inhaled dimethylacetamide or absorbed dimethylacetamide vapor through the skin (Maxfield et al 1975). Measurement of the amount of the metabolite N-methylacetamide excreted by individuals exposed to dimethylacetamide vapors with or without face masks which allowed the inhalation of air free of dimethylacetamide indicated that more dimethylacetamide was absorbed through the lungs than through the skin. Interestingly, in this study, only 2-10% of the amount of dimethylacetamide inhaled was recovered in the urine in the form of N-methylacetamide. It has been suggested that the major urinary metabolite of the analogous dimethylformamide is N-(hydroxymethyl)-N-methylformamide and not N-methylformamide, since the carbinolamide decomposes on the gas chroma-tography column (to N-methylformamide) but is relatively stable in aqueous solution (Kestell et al 1986). In analogy, it would be logical to assume that the N-methylacetamide found in the urine after exposure to dimethylacetamide really arose from chemical breakdown of N-(hydroxymethyl)-N-methylacetamide during the analytical process. This contention, however, remains to be proven.


Dimethylacetamide should be stored in an airtight container, protected from light, in a cool, dry place. Dimethylacetamide has an almost unlimited shelf-life when kept in closed containers and under nitrogen. It is combustible.

Purification Methods

Shake the amide with BaO for several days, reflux it with BaO for 1hour, then fractionally distil it under reduced pressure. Store it over molecular sieves. [Beilstein 4 IV 180.]


Dimethylacetamide is incompatible with carbon tetrachloride, oxidizing agents, halogenated compounds, and iron. It attacks plastic and rubber. Contact with strong oxidizers may cause fire.

Regulatory Status

Included in the FDA Inactive Ingredients Database (IM injections, IV injections and infusions). Included in parenteral medicines licensed in the UK.
