Triethylamine (TEA) belongs to the trialkylamine class. It finds widespread use in chemical industry.
Triethylamine (TEA) is used as a neutralization agent for anionic stabilized waterborne resins (polyesters, alkyds, acrylic resins and polyurethanes containing carboxyl or other acidic groups).
It is also utilized as a catalyst in the curing of epoxy and polyurethane systems.
In the synthesis, TEA is primarily used as a proton scavenger; however, it is also used in the production of Diethylhydroxylamine and other organic compounds.
