N,N-Dimethylethanolamine (DMMEA) (chemical name : 3431-0-29-7) is a volatile amine composed of two oxygen atoms, four carbon atoms, and four nitrogen atoms, and is a clear to pale liquid at room temperature. DMMEA has the unique ability to react with both polar and non-polar compounds, making it a preferred reagent for many industrial applications.
DMMEA is a versatile reagent, often employed as a catalyst or curative for a variety of chemical manufacturing processes. It is used to catalyze acylation, a process that creates the starting material for surfactants, agricultural chemicals and pharmaceuticals. DMMEA is also employed in the synthesis of acrylic resins and as a silane coupling agent for rubber and elastomers.
As a pure amine compound, DMMEA is employed in the production of pharmaceuticals for the treatment of hypertension and other circulatory ailments. It serves as an intermediate in the production of methyltryptamine and is used in water-based paint for increased binding and improved adhesion. DMMEA also serves as an additive for protection against static build up in various industrial applications.
DMMEA evaporates rapidly from a liquid form, leaving no residue, making it an ideal choice for industrial processes requiring low levels of residual amines. Additionally, DMMEA is preferably used in closed systems due to its high level of volatility.
