trimethylamine tri·meth·yl·a·mine (trī-měth'ə-lə-mēn', -lām'ēn, -mə-thĭl'ə-mēn')
A degradation product of nitrogenous plant and animal substances.
At 22 it forms a fluorescing pigment and trimethylamine, but not at 35.
trimethylamine, , a liquid, results when three hydrogens are similarly replaced.
On boiling with water, it decomposes into glycol and trimethylamine.
Propylamine or trimethylamine is deserving of further trial in this disease.
trimethylamine is always present ready formed in ergot; it can also be produced by the action of potash on ergot.
The chemical constituents of ergot are a fixed oil, trimethylamine, certain active principles, and colouring-matters.
When distilled with a fixed alkali, it yields di- and trimethylamine.
Whether the strong odour of trimethylamine evolved by the spores of Tilletia attracts insects is not known.
Distilled with potash, trimethylamine and other bases are formed.
It is decomposed by alkalies with the formation of choline and trimethylamine.
