Principal applications for Amietol M11 include:
Chemically it behaves as both a secondary amine and an alcohol. Neutralisation of the amino function by acids results in salt formation.
The product is relatively stable at elevated temperatures but must be kept away from oxidants and acids.
Carbon steel is adequate for storage of MMEA.
Stainless AISI 316 L is preferable if color stability is to be maintained over long periods.
Copper and copper alloys should be avoided.
For bulk storage a nitrogen atmosphere is necessary to prevent the absorption of moisture and discoloration.
