Product Description

Formamide is an amide and it is manufactured from methyl formate and ammonia. It is a clear liquid, miscible with water, ethanol and acetone and has a slight ammoniacal odor. In the environment it decomposes into ammonia, carbon dioxide and water.

Formamide is a chemical reactant or solvent in various chemical processes. It is mostly used as a reactant in the manufacture of agrochemicals (e.g. imidazoles), pharmaceuticals (e.g. allopurinol), and industrial chemicals (e.g. n-vinylformamide) and as a solvent in polymers and resins.

Formamide is registered with strictly controlled condition as defined in Article 18(4) of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (REACH regulation) and must therefore be handled as such.

Formamide production has certified EHSQ management systems in accordance with ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and FAM-QS standards.
