Does anyone know if there is a suggested temperature range to store DMSO.

Can it be refrigerated? Should it be?

I refrigerate my MMS and HCL.

When I'm gone for the day. my house can get to be 80 or 90 or even hotter during the summer.

TIA

Here is one reference.

"This product should be stored at room temperature and protected from exposure to moisture. When stored as indicated, DMSO has a shelf-life of two years."

DMSO is thermally stable. It can be heated to 150°C for 24 hours with less than 0.1% loss in purity.

DMSO is stable up to 100°C in alkaline, acidic and neutral conditions.

So it should be fine in most "normal" temperature ranges.
