Properties of Amines

Amines are somewhat polar. But the polarity is not as high as that of alcohols. As the below figure indicates, the amines have intermediate boiling points.

Keep in mind that we are comparing the boiling points of amines with comparable alkanes and alcohols. Among amines only primary and secondary amines can form hydrogen bonds. Lower amines are soluble in water.
