Fatty acids are an important raw material for the synthesis of organic amine compounds. It is not only related to the production of tertiary amine fatty primary amines by nitrile method but also can form many compounds with special amino groups by acylation. Among them, amido amines are a kind of versatile products.
These chemicals can be used not only as intermediates for the further synthesis of cationic and amphoteric surfactants, such as monoalkyl trimethyl ammonium chloride, dialkyl dimethyl ammonium chloride, and benzyl ammonium chloride. Moreover, due to amido amine’s special solubility and lubricating properties, it has been widely used in many industrial production processes. Amido amines' main products include: N-3(hydrogenated cocoamido) propyl dimethylamines, N-3-laurylamidopropyl dimethylamines, N-3-oleylamidopropyl dimethylamines, N-3-erucylamidopropyl dimethylamines.
