General description

Phenethylamine (β-phenylethylamine, PEA) is a biogenic amine. Its structure and properties are similar to amphetamine. The influence of PEA on dopamine concentrations in the nucleus accumbens and prefrontal cortex has been investigated in rats. N-alkylation of phenethylamine, employing alcohols as the alkylating agent has been reported. Normal Raman (NR) and the surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) for the characterization of phenethylamine has been reported.

Application

Phenethylamine is the suitable reagent used for the preparation of bis(2-phenylethylammonium) tetrachloridocobaltate(II). It may be used for the conversion of C14O2 into a soluble form for liquid scintillation counting. It may be used for the synthesis of series of the layered inorganic-organic perovskite materials.
