Introducing Triethylamine (TEA)

  July 22, 2021

Triethylamine (TEA) Attributes and Applications TEA is a colorless, volatile liquid with a smell like ammonia and liquid at room temperature. It is produced by the reaction between ammonia and ethanol in presence of heat and pressure. The substance is mainly used as an intermediate in the agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries, formulations and is widely used as an intermediate compound for manufacturing pesticides, medicines, dyes, catalysts during the manufacturing of polyurethane foam, epoxy resin, dehydrogenation reactions, propellent, hardening agent for polymers and as an acid neutralizer for condensation reactions.  Storage & HandlingTEA is completely soluble in water. It is a highly flammable liquid and a corrosive product. Store in well-ventilated, cool, dry conditions. Keep the container sealed. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapor or mist. Keep away from sources of ignition. Current Europe Situation Supplies in the European region remained sluggish due to the reduced overseas shipments from the USA following bad weather conditions. Besides, hindrance in transportation of key feedstock ammonia and reduced plant operating rate amidst severe cold weather in North-western Europe also impacted the regional supply fundamentals. Demand kept a firm stance in the European market due to the constant off takes from the downstream pharmaceutical sector. Arbitrage window between the APAC and Europe regions was hampered in the quarter ending due to the Suez Canal blockage. Amid the rapid spread of COVID-19 during Q4 2020, industrial activities remained low and hence the shortage of feedstock chemicals elevated the price of Triethylamine. FOB price of Triethylamine in Belgium rose from USD 1740/tonne (October 2020) to USD 1940/tonne (December 2020). The reason behind the rise was lower imports of feedstock materials and restricted movements amid the second wave of COVID-19 infections. The demand for Triethylamine remained firm throughout the quarter.
