Left: two resonance structures of DMF. Right: illustration highlighting delocalization. Reactions[ edit ] DMF is hydrolyzed by strong acids and bases, especially at elevated temperatures. With sodium hydroxide , DMF converts to formate and dimethylamine. DMF undergoes decarbonylation near its boiling point to give dimethylamine.
