The JEFFAMINE® polyoxyalkyleneamines are a part of an ever-expanding family of polyether compound products. They contain primary amino groups attached to the terminus of a polyether backbone. They are thus "polyether amines." The polyether backbone is based either on propylene oxide (PO), ethylene oxide (EO), or mixed EO/PO. Newer products may contain other backbone segments and varied reactivity provided by hindering the primary amine or through secondary amine functionality.
The basic JEFFAMINE® product family consists of monoamines, diamines, and triamines, which are available in a variety of molecular weights, ranging up to 5,000.
The wide range of molecular weights, amine functionality, and oxide type and distribution provides flexibility in synthetic design of compounds made from JEFFAMINE® products. For the most part, JEFFAMINE® products undergo typical amine reactions and are low viscosity, color and low vapor pressure.
