LP15562-9   Ethanolamine
Ethanolamine, also called 2-aminoethanol or monoethanolamine (often abbreviated as MEA), is an organic chemical compound which is both a primary amine (due to an amino group in its molecule) and a primary alcohol (due to a hydroxyl group). Like other amines, monoethanolamine acts as a weak base. Ethanolamine is a toxic flammable corrosive colorless viscous liquid with an odor similar to ammonia. Ethanolamine is commonly called monoethanolamine or MEA to distinguish it from diethanolamine (DEA) and triethanolamine (TEA). Monoethanolamine is produced by reacting ethylene oxide with ammonia. Further treatment with ethylene oxide can yield DEA andor TEA. Ethanolamine is the second most abundant head group for phospholipids. Ethanolamine also refers to a class of antihistamines containing an ethyl-amine group attached to a diphenyl structure. Examples of drugs within this class include diphenhydramine (Benadryl), phenyltoloxamine (Percogesic), and doxylamine (Unisom Sleep Tablets).

LP15562-9   Ethanolamine
A viscous, hygroscopic amino alcohol with an ammoniacal odor. It is widely distributed in biological tissue and is a component of lecithin. It is used as a surfactant, fluorimetric reagent, and to remove CO2 and H2S from natural gas and other gases. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006
