    Brief Overview

    Mono ethanol amine, also known as 2-aminoethanol or ethanolamine, is an organic compound that is both a primary amine and primary alcohol. It appears to be a clear, viscous, organic liquid that produces a mild ammonia-like odour, derived from ethylene oxide and ammonia. Mono ethanol amine, have low volatility at room temperature, it is hygroscopic and it can appear in either solid or liquid form depending on the temperature and the purity. Mono ethanol amine has the lowest flash point among Ethanol amines.


    Manufacturing Process

    Mono ethanol amine produced from the reaction between ammonia and ethylene oxide. The reaction diethanolamine and triethanolamine is produced as side products. The ratio of the products can be carefully controlled by changing the stoichiometry of the reactants.
