Alkylamines are organic compounds produced through the reaction of an alcohol (such as methanol or a higher chain alcohol (C1-C6)) with ammonia. The immediate results of these processes are methylamines and higher alkylamines, which can then be reacted with other chemicals to produce alkylamine derivatives.
