What is Isopropanolamine?

Isopropanolamine is a common name for 1-amino-2-propanol, also known as monoisopropanolamine. Isopropanolamine has a wide range of uses: it can be used in daily chemicals such as detergents, liquid detergents, and shampoos; it can be used in fabrics, wool spinning, and leather auxiliaries; it can be used in cleaning agents for metal electronic liquid crystals and semiconductors; it can be used Used in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, pesticides and flavors and fragrances intermediates.

Isopropanolamine Uses

  1. The action in between Isopropanolamine in addition to fat creates fat isopropanolamide (alkyl isopropanolamide) and also ester. Because of its superb frothing property, foam safety and security and capacity to liquify oil, it can be utilized as a business synthetic cleaning agent.
  2. The product received from isopropanolamine in addition to thioglycolic acid can be made use of as a base for cosmetics.
  3. As a result of its excellent hygroscopicity as well as weak alkalinity, it can be used as a basic material for surfactants, in addition to fine-tuning agents, antistatic reps, dyeing accessories and also fiber wetting agents in the fiber sector.
  4. Its phosphate and nitrite can be utilized as anti-oxidants in numerous lubricating oils as well as also decreasing oils.
  5. The response products with different acids and also higher aliphatic ketones can be utilized as plasticizers, emulsifiers as well as also solvents.
    The isopropanolamine blend has an especially solid solubility for hydrocarbons. Mix kerosene, halogenated hydrocarbons, naphtha, and so on with isopropanolamine (4%) and also oleic acid (15%) in water to get a steady solution. The salts developed with long-chain fatty acids can be utilized as emulsifiers for plastic acetate resins. The emulsion has great stability and steady shade.
  6. Isopropanolamine can additionally be used in the prep work of synthetic detergents, cosmetics, lubing oils, cutting oils, plasticizers, emulsifiers, and also solvents. It can be processed and produced as complementary representative in textile, printing and dyeing. It can be utilized in electroplating cleaning, surfactant, medication and more.

Synthesis of Isopropanolamine

Most of the industrial production methods of isopropanolamine are based on ammonia water or liquefied ammonia and propylene oxide as raw materials to synthesize isopropanolamine series mixtures, and then gradually separate monoisopropanolamine, diisopropanolamine, and triisopropanolamine. Three products of isopropanolamine.

A kind of synthetic method of isopropanolamine is characterized in that comprising the steps:

1) Make liquid ammonia and water into ammonia water, mix it with propylene oxide, then preheat to 120-125°C, and control the molar ratio of ammonia and propylene oxide at 10-15;

2) Feed the preheated material into the reactor for reaction. During the reaction, the temperature is controlled at 128-138°C, the pressure is controlled at 12.6-13.8Mpa, and the reaction is performed for 1.5-3 hours;

3) Using a flash tower to separate excess unreacted ammonia from the mixture obtained after the reaction, the pressure of the flash tower is controlled at 0.6-1.6Mpa, and the temperature of the tower bottom is controlled at 140-160°C;

4) Send the mixture separated by the flash tower to the dehydration tower for rectification and dehydration. The pressure of the dehydration tower is controlled at -0.080~-0.085Mpa, the temperature of the tower top is controlled at 45~55°C, and the temperature of the tower bottom is controlled at 110-130 ℃, remove water from the top of the tower, and obtain the isopropanolamine mixture in the dehydration tower;

5) Send the dehydrated mixture into the rectification column for rectification. The pressure of the rectification column is controlled at -0.095~-0.099Mpa, the temperature of the tower bottom is controlled at 135-160°C, and the temperature at the top of the tower is controlled at 60-70°C. The isopropanolamine product is obtained at the top, and the mixture of diisopropanolamine and triisopropanolamine obtained in the tower kettle.
