N,N,N',N'-Tetramethylethylenediamine is used as polymerization accelerator in gel electrophoresis, solvent and oxidizing reagent. N,N,N',N'-Tetramethylethylenediamine is used as anti-hyperlipidemic, plant growth stimulator, pathogen growth inhibitor, confers plant disease resistance. TEMED is used with ammonium persulfate to catalyze the polymerization of acrylamide when making polyacrylamide gels, used in gel electrophoresis. TMEDA is widely employed as a ligand for metal ions. TEMED can also be a component of Hypergolic propellants. Tetramethylethylenediamine (TEMED) is an essential catalyst for polyacrylamide gel polymerization. TEMED is frequently used with another catalyst, APS, for the preparation of polyacrylamide gels for protein and nucleic acid analysis.
