1.1: ETHANOLAMINES :-
Ethanolamine, also known as Mono-Ethanol-Amine (often abbreviated as MEA), is an organic chemical compound which is both a primary amine (due to an amino group in its molecule) and a primary alcohol (due to a hydroxyl group). Like other amines, Mono-Ethanol-Amine acts as a weak base. Ethanolamine is a toxic flammable corrosive colorless viscous liquid with an odor similar to ammonia.
Mono-Ethanol-Amine is produced by reacting ethylene oxide with ammonia. Further treatment with ethylene oxide can yield DEA and/or TEA. Ethanolamine is the second most abundant head group for phospholipids.
MEA is used in aqueous solutions for scrubbing certain acidic gases and is also used in surface active agents, emulsifiers, polishes, pharmaceuticals, corrosion inhibitors, chemical intermediates. In pharmaceutical formulations, MEA is primarily used for buffering or preparation of emulsions.
