Title Validation of techniques for the destruction of dimethyl sulfate
Bibliographic information Mar. 1985, Vol.46, No.3, p.111-114. 20 ref.
Abstract The efficiency of the technique for neutralising dimethyl sulfate (DMS) based on the degradation of DMS with NaOH (1mol/L), sodium carbonate (1mol/L) or ammonium hydroxide (1.5mol/L) solutions has been tested and confirmed. Complete destruction times for DMS in several solvants are given. Reaction products were methanol or methyl-, dimethyl- and trimethylamine.
