Triethyl Amine

We are a distributor of the product Triethyl Amine for Eastern and Western Europe, but with excellent opportunities for export outside of Europe.

Description and uses

Triethylamine is commonly employed in organic synthesis as a base, most often in the preparation of esters with acid chlorides. Such reactions lead to the production of hydrochloric acid which, upon reacting with Triethylamine, forms the salt triethylamine hydrochloride. This both neutralizes the acid and shifts the reaction equilibrium to favour the ester formation. Triethylamine is also used for the preparation of quaternary ammonium compounds and in the synthesis of pesticides, pharmaceuticals, paints and coatings. As a catalyst Triethylamine is used to help cross-linking of polyurethane foams, but also for the synthesis of epoxy and phenolic resins. Other applications of Triethylamine include curing, hardening and corrosion inhibition for polymers and its use as a propellant.
