Amines are organic compounds in which one, two or all three hydrogen atoms of the ammonia have been replaced by alkyl groups or aryl groups or have joined together to form more or less different heterocyclic ring systems.
Depending on the number of substituted hydrogen atoms, a distinction is made between primary (substitution of one H atom), secondary (substitution of two H atoms) and tertiary (substitution of three H atoms).
A group of industrially important amines are the ethanolamines mono-, di- and triethanolamine.
Ethanolamines are mainly used in the form of their fatty acid salts as detergents, emulsifiers, ointment bases, etc. used. In addition, ethanolamines are used as auxiliaries in the production of synthetic resins, as anti-corrosion agents and plasticizers, and for the separation of hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide from gases and, in a mixture with Cu(I) chloride, of alkenes from hydrocarbon mixtures.
