About Monoethanolamine. 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.
Chemical Formula. C2H7NO
Commercial Grades. commercial/technical grade (99.5% minimum purity); National Formulary grade (NF, 99% minimum purity); low freezing grade (85% solution of MEA, 15% water); iron and chloride free grade (<1 ppm chloride, < 0.5% chloride).
Uses. Monoethanolamine is mainly used in gas treating operations. Aqueous solutions of MEA are used to remove contaminants (e.g. carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide) from gaseous streams, such as natural and refinery gas. Monoethanolamine is also used in the production of cosmetics, surfactants, detergents, emulsifiers, and agricultural sprays; in wool treatment; as neutralizing agent; selective solvent; pH control agent; rubber accelerator; dispersant for paints and polishers; food-contact animal glues; and softening agent in the tanning industry.
- Ammonia + ethylene oxide (Epoxidation).
