Hello Pavol,

you might try Formamide (dissolves more, but takes longer) or DMSO.
Takes lots of time. Just had a look on the shelf where some flasks
reside already for 3years ;-) and indeed, in Formamide, about 1gram/
50ml had completely dissolved. The solution has a funny aspect as it
is somehow a little gelly.

I haven't tried to add water as I wanted to avoid aqueous conditions.
Ionic liquids might work, too.

Besr regards and good luck!
