Important Facts about Ethanamine (Acetaldehyde)

  • Ethanamine (Acetaldehyde) is the tautomeric form of important N-substituted Schiff bases including PVA (Polyvinyl acetate) and Acetonitrile.
  • An alternative name is "aminoacetaldehyde dimethyl acetal".


  • When Chloroform or DCM is used as a reactant gas, unstable ethanamine species may be converted to HN3 vapors in situ via the Schmidt route. [2, 3, 4]
