Possible Hazards/Uses of This Chemical
Dimethylamine is a known pheromone that German Cockroaches use to communicate. It is colorless gas, and gives off an odor similar to that of ammonia.
This chemical can be man-made, where in 2005 around 270,000 tons were produced in factories. Although dimethylamine can be produced industrially, it can also be found as a natural chemical compound.
Some of the more common uses for Dimethylamine are:
- Insect Pheromone
- Converting Natural Rubber into Durable Materials
- Solution for Water Concentrations
- Soaps and Cleaning Compounds
- Found in Rocket Fuel (Unsymmetrical Dimethylhydrazine)
From intensive research, our team discovered that Dimethylamine is not a potentially hazardous chemical compound. This compound can commonly be found in plants and animals, and it is distributed widely among the food industry.
