naming bases

Postby EMurphy_2L » Tue Dec 03, 2019 6:39 pm

I know dr Lavelle said CH3NH2, methylammine and (CH3)3N, trimethylamine are weak acids but I just don't understand where these names come from?

Methyl refers to the CH3 group and Amine refers to the NH2 group (think ammonia but not really). For trimethylamine, the tri refers to the number of methyl groups being bound to the nitrogen (named amine).
