DMS is used in HALS (Hindered Amine Light Stabilisers) via the production of Dimethyl Succinate/4 hydroxy-1-(2-hydroxyethyl )-2,2,6,6 –tetramethylpiperidine copolymer. HALS are used to inhibit degradation of polymers. DMS is also used as a pigment intermediate Dimethyl Succinyl Succinate (DMSS) CAS: 6289-46-9 for violet 19 and red 122. DMS is also used in Pharma applications. It has been used to form one step furan resins in subterranean wellbores, conductive pastes and even paper coatings and photographics.
