Project Overview

Ether Amines - Asia

Report on 2016 cost structure of ether amines, including feedstock, energy, labor, fixed costs.

Ether amines contain C-O-C ether bond and one or more terminal NH2 amino groups.

Ether amines are synthesized by reacting the appropriate alcohol (R-OH) with one equivalent of acrylonitrile, forming intermediate ether nitrile, which is in turn reacted with two equivalents of hydrogen gas, forming the desired ether amine.

The cost of an equivalent (mole) of ether amine includes feedstock:

1.    the starting alcohol;

2.    one equivalent of acrylonitrile;

3.    two equivalents of hydrogen gas
