Storage method

1. Store sealed in a cool, dry place. Make sure the workspace has good ventilation. Keep sealed.

2. Keep away from fire sources and store away from oxidants and acidic substances.

Synthesis method

1. Obtained from the reaction of diacetyl oxime and hydroxylamine-sodium sulfonate. Add diacetyl oxime to the hydroxylamine-sodium sulfonate solution, heat to 70°C, and keep warm for several hours to precipitate diacetyl oxime crystals. After cooling, filter immediately and wash with ice water until no more sulfate is contained. , that’s it. Hydroxylamine-sodium sulfonate can be prepared as follows: mix sodium nitrite with crushed ice, add a suspension of sodium bisulfite and water while stirring, then add glacial acetic acid from below the liquid surface while stirring, and then add Add concentrated hydrochloric acid and crushed ice to keep the reaction solution below 0°C. Use Congo red test paper to test for an acidic reaction. Filter to remove the insoluble precipitate to obtain a hydroxylamine-sodium sulfonate solution.

2.Add 70% sodium bisulfite suspension to 10% sodium nitrite ice water below 0°C under stirring In the mixture, stir continuously, add glacial acetic acid under the liquid surface, and then add a mixture of concentrated hydrochloric acid and crushed ice. During the reaction, add ice to control the temperature not to exceed 0°C. After the reaction, the solution is acidic to Congo red:

Filter out the insoluble matter to obtain an acidic solution of sodium hydroxysulfamate. Add diacetyl oxime to the above acidic solution, stir and heat to 70-80°C, maintain for more than 2 hours, let it stand, and filter after the crystallization is complete. Wash the crystals with water until neutral, spin dry and dissolve in ethanol, then add an appropriate amount of activated carbon for decolorization, evaporate, concentrate and dry to obtain white dimethylglyoxime crystals.


1. Used for the verification and determination of nickel. Separate nickel from cobalt and other metals, and separate palladium from tin, gold, rhenium, iridium, etc. Photometric determination of cyanide, nickel, and palladium.

2.Spectrophotometric method for determination of chromogenic reagents such as nickel, weighing method for determination or precipitation separation of Ni2+ , Pd2+ and other precipitants. It can also be used as an extraction agent.
