Diethylamine And Its Varied Uses In The Industry

Today amines are widely used in a number of different industries for multiple applications, such as production of dyes, manufacture of drugs and treatment of gas in natural gas refineries. Amines are organic compounds, which are derivatives of ammonia. Diethylamine is a secondary amine with the molecular structure CH3CH2NHCH2CH3. It is flammable and can be mixed with water and ethanol and is completely soluble in water. In appearance Diethylamine is a colorless liquid but it looks brown most of the time due to a number of impurities present in it. It has a boiling point of 55 degrees centigrade and a melting point of -50 degrees centigrade. It is unstable structure-wise and emits a strong odor similar to ammonia. Diethylamine is manufactured from bio-ethanol, which is a renewable resource.

The applications of Diethylamine are varied. Diethylamine is used in the production of pesticides. It is used in a mixture for the production of DEET which goes into the repellents that are found readily in supermarkets for general use. Diethylamine is also mixed with other chemicals to form Diethylaminoethanole, which is used mainly as a corrosion inhibitor in water treatment facilities as well as production of dyes, rubber, resins, and pharmaceuticals. Apart from the aforementioned, Diethylamine is also used in manufacture of basic chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
