Can I use DMSO as solvent?

It should be ok, although please keep in mind that it may act as a catalyst poison and acidic conditions may accelerate its decomposition rate, especially at higher temperatures.
Just in case, please make sure to wash it out from the system afterwards with water and or some common alcohol like MeOH, EtOH (The system is preferred to be kept wetted with alcohol rather than with water anyway)
