US Amines Product Introduction


This website presents the synthetic Alkylamines which are marketed by U. S. Amines.

Alkylamines are, by definition, derivatives of ammonia in which one or more hydrogen atoms are replaced by alkyl or cycloalkyl radicals. Depending on the degree of substitution, primary, secondary or tertiary amines are formed.



U. S. Amines uses four basic technologies to produce amines.

These are:

  • Vapor-phase ammonolysis of alcohols.
  • Liquid phase reductive amination of ketones and aldehydes.
  • Liquid phase reduction of nitriles to produce alkylamines and acrylonitrile derived functional amines, diamines and triamines.
  • Liquid phase amination of dichloroalkanes and allyl chlorides.
