Molecule Structure Image



Diethanolamine is an organic compound. This colorless liquid is polyfunctional, being a secondary amine and a diol. Like other organic amines, diethanolamine acts as a weak base. It is used as a surfactant and a corrosion inhibitor. It is used to remove hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide from natural gas. Diethanolamides are common ingredients in cosmetics and shampoos added to confer a creamy texture and foaming action.
