Diethanolamine belongs to the class of ethanolamines. Among many other applications it is mainly used in the production of agrochemicals, detergents and surfactants.


How are Ethanolamines used?

Ethanolamines are used as a building block, ph-neutralisation- as well as dilution-agent.


Which are the benefits and properties?

Ethanolamines combine the properties of amines and alcohols in one molecule. They exhibit the unique capability of undergoing reactions common to both groups (bifunctioncal). As amines, they are mildly alkaline and react with acids to form salts or soaps. As alcohols they can can be transformed to ethers and esters. Ethanolamines are miscible with water, most alcohols and polyols.

Most of their industrial applications are dependent to some degree on these features.


How is it offered to its customers?

Products are offered in bulk & drum, pure and in solutions with water.
