Chemical Information
FooDB NameDiethylamine
DescriptionDiethylamine, also known as (c2h5)2nh or dea, is a member of the class of compounds known as dialkylamines. Dialkylamines are organic compounds containing a dialkylamine group, characterized by two alkyl groups bonded to the amino nitrogen. Diethylamine is soluble (in water) and a very strong basic compound (based on its pKa). Diethylamine is an ammoniacal and fishy tasting compound and can be found in a number of food items such as corn, apple, barley, and common grape, which makes diethylamine a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products. Diethylamine is a non-carcinogenic (not listed by IARC) potentially toxic compound. Diethylamine is an organic compound with the formula (CH3CH2)2NH. It is a secondary amine. It is a flammable, weakly alkaline liquid that is miscible with most solvents. It is a colorless liquid, but commercial samples often appear brown due to impurities. It has a strong ammonia-like odor .
