Unfortunately, Eleusis was wrong here. The reaction between Hexamine and hydrochloric acid is the same as between ammonium chloride and formaldehyde, and also the same as between ammonium chloride and paraformaldehyde. Synthesis. Methylamine Hydrochloride from Ammonium Chloride and Formalin 
Methylamine is the simplest of the methylamines, consisting of ammonia bearing a single methyl substituent. It has a role as a mouse metabolite. It is a primary aliphatic amine, a one-carbon compound and a member of methylamines.It is a conjugate base of a methylammonium.
Methylamine is a weak base and can neutralize strong acids, such as hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, etc. The reaction between methylamine and sulfuric acid can be written as follows:
The reaction looks exactly the same as the one with ammonia. The methylamine is again used as a concentrated solution in water. There is a violent reaction producing a white solid mixture of N-methylethanamide and methylammonium chloride.
Methylamine is prepared commercially by the reaction of ammonia with methanol in the presence of a silicoaluminate catalyst. Dimethylamine and trimethylamine are coproduced; the reaction kinetics and reactant ratios determine the ratio of the three products. The product most favoured by the reaction kinetics is trimethylamine.
In the above reaction, methylamine accepts a proton from water and is thereby a Bronsted base. For the reverse reaction, the opposite is true, as CH3NH3+ donates a proton to hydroxide, classifying it as a Bronsted acid. Therefore, CH3NH3+ is the conjugate of methylamine.
The reaction of [TiCl 2 Cp 2] with methylamine at 137 °C results in cleavage of a single Ti Cl bond with formation of the solvated species [TiCl(NHMe)Cp 2]·nMeNH 2 together with the amine hydrochloride. A similar cleavage reaction was noted using ammonia instead of the primary amine. 243 In more recent years the reactions of other amines with [TiCl 2 Cp 2], at room temperature in benzene ...
The reaction is reversible, with the great majority of the ammonia at any one time present as free ammonia rather than ammonium ions. The presence of the hydroxide ions from this reaction makes the solution alkaline. The corresponding reaction with amines. The amine still contains the nitrogen lone pair, and does exactly the same thing.
Reactions of Amines. The Hoffmann Elimination Reaction. Recall that alkyl halides (except fluorides) and alcohols (in the presence of acid) can undergo elimination reactions to give alkenes. In both of these systems, good leaving groups are present, thus permitting an E2 elimination (or in some cases an E1 elimination).
