Paper Chemicals

(Di- and Trimethylamine)

Trimethylamine is used to make paper chemicals such as its reaction with epichlorohydrin to make 3-chloro-2-hydroxypropyltrimethylammonium chloride and the epoxy product glyciditrimethylammonium  chloride. These are both used as cationizing starches.

DMDAC (see Surfactants) from dimethylamine is also used in the paper industry.
