Monoethanolamine(MEA)

Monoethanolamine(MEA)

Uses of MEA

  • GB 2760-96 provides it as allowable food processing aids with GMP as limit. 
  • It can be used as the cleaning liquid for the removal of carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide in the gas. Esters generated from the reaction between triethanolamine and higher fatty acids are widely used as detergents, emulsifiers, wetting agents and lubricants as well as for the preparation of cosmetic balsam. Triethanolamine can also be used as preservatives and waterproofing agents, analysis reagents and solvents. In the nitrile rubber polymerization, it is used as an activator. It can also be used as the emulsifier, stabilizer, textile softer of oil and wax. It is one of the components of oiling agent of synthetic fiber.
  • It can be used as the additives in the nitrile rubber polymerization, concrete accelerator, oil emulsifier as well as used for non-cyanide plating
  • It can be used as the stationary phase of gas chromatography (the maximum applied temperature is 75 ℃; the solvent is methanol and ethanol); It can be used for separation and analysis of oxygen, nitrogen compounds and water-containing samples. It can be used as complexing agent; as metal masking agent; for titration of platinum and palladium; for colorimetric determination of manganese; for determination of tin, antimony and manganese; used for absorption of carbon dioxide and carbon disulfide and other alkaline gases; used as emulsifier, solvent and corrosion inhibitors.

CAS NO. 141-43-5

The chemical Monoethanolamine (MEA) is primarily a buffering agent in pharmaceutical formulations and is used in the preparation of emulsions. In addition, the most common therapeutic use of this product is as a monoethanolamine oleate injection for tissue hardening agents. Other uses include as a fat and oil solvent and as a phenytoin glucose solution for injection stabilizer. MEA can also be used to prepare a variety of therapeutically useful salts. For example, vitamin C monoethanolamine salt can be used for intramuscular injection, and salicylic acid monoethanolamine salt and monoundecens monoethanolamine salt can be used to treat rheumatism and as an antifungal agent respectively.

Industrial applications of MEA

MEA is used as chemical reagents, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, solvents, dye intermediates, rubber accelerators, corrosion inhibitors, and surfactants. Also used as acid gas absorbents, emulsifiers, plasticizers, rubber vulcanizing agents, printing and dyeing brighteners, fabric anti-caries agents, etc. In addition, monoethanolamine can be used as a decolorizer in the production of new energy bio-diesel.

MEA reacts with oxiepoxyethane and to produce diethanolamine and triethanolamine.
