The chemical formula for the chemical compound Triethylamine is N(CH2CH3)3 which is also known as Et3N and usually abbreviated as TEA. However, while using this abbreviation it is important to pay attention for avoiding any confusion with tetraethylammonium or triethanolamine. It appears to be colorless in its liquid form which is volatile in nature having a strong pungent smell like a fish and similar to that of hawthorn plant. Similar to diisopropylethylamine, it can be easily encountered during organic synthesizing working as a base. Moreover, it is also used for rendering salts a number of pesticides that contain carboxylic acid such as 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid and Triclopyr.
