About the Authors
  • The understanding of amine chemistry is of paramount importance to numerous chemical industries, as well as to academic research. This book provides an authoritative account of the properties and applications of amines with respect to the characteristics of bonded substituents and the nature of their surrounding chemical and physical environments. The synthesis of alkyl, aryl and heterocyclic amines and inorganic amines with a review of their typical reactions is comprehensively treated, whilst practical synthetic and analytical methods for laboratory preparation and detection are provided. The importance of amine chemistry from the nineteenth century to the modern day, with a brief history of the development of ammonia synthesis, is included. This book is an invaluable reference for undergraduates, postgraduates and chemical researchers working in industry.

    • Covers the chemistry and properties of all types of amines in a single book, plus all of the important synthesis and reactions of amines
    • Discusses application of amines in a variety of industries
    • Written by a chemist with over 20 years of practical experience with amines
