2-(Dimethylamino)ethanol is used as corrosion inhibitor, anti-scaling agent, paint additive, coating additive and solids separation agent. It is also used as an intermediate for active pharmaceutical ingredients and dyes. It serves as a curing agent for polyurethanes and epoxy resins. Further, it is used as an additive to boiler water. In addition to this, it is used therapeutically as a CNS stimulant.
In the presence of 2 mol of n-BuLi, forms a unimetal superbase complex of the Li alkoxide with an additional molecule of n-BuLi: J. Chem. Soc., Perkin 1, 3071 (1997). For examples of its use, see 2-Methoxypyridine, A13675, 2-Chloropyridine, A14866.
