Monoethanolamine (a.k.a. MEA, Ethanolamine, 2-Aminoethanol) is an organic compound, containing a primary alcohol and amine groups. It is a colorless, viscous liquid, with ammoniacal odor. Due to its high viscosity, MEA is commonly used as a thickener/emulsifier in a wide range of processes and industries. In recent times, due to increased attention in carbon dioxide capture and sequestration, monoethanolamine has been used frequently as the solvent choice for the scrubbing process for the amine’s weak base properties.
