Dimethylcarbamoyl fluoride is a chemical compound that can be produced by fluorination of dimethylcarbamoyl chloride with potassium fluoride.[1] It's a colorless liquid that is soluble and stable in water.[2][3]

Dimethylcarbamoyl fluoride is highly toxic because it's a potent cholinesterase inhibitor and is lethal even at low doses.[2][3]
