Product Description

Hexamethylenetetramine

Application Notes

Hexamethylenetetramine is used for amino acid preparation. It is also used in synthesis as a formylation agent and is employed in preparing specialized materials. It is also used as a precipitating agent.Hexamethylenetetramine (HMTA) may be used as:• Raw material in the synthesis of blue emitting boron carbon oxynitride (BCNO) phosphors and Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorods.• Catalyst in the synthesis of 2-amino-4H-pyran derivatives.• Surfactant in the synthesis of HMTA capped transition metals doped ZnS nanoparticles.• Precipitant and template in the synthesis of Ni(OH)2.
