2,2,6,6-Tetramethylpiperidine or TMP or HTMP is a clear light yellow liquid with an amine odor. This amine is used in chemistry as a hindered base because it can dissolve in organic solvents unlike ordinary bases such as potassium hydroxide.
Additional recommended knowledge
There are many ways to synthesise TMP. One recent method starts with a conjugate addition reaction of ammonia to phorone. The intermediate triacetone amine is then reduced in a Wolff-Kishner reaction.
