Molecule Structure Image



Ethanolamine is an organic chemical compound that is both a primary amine and a primary alcohol. Like other amines, monoethanolamine acts as a weak base. Ethanolamine is the second-most-abundant head group for phospholipids, substances found in biological membranes. It is used in aqueous solutions for scrubbing certain acidic gases. It is used as feedstock in the production of detergents, emulsifiers, polishes, pharmaceuticals, corrosion inhibitors, chemical intermediates.
