Aminomethanol (also called "methanolamine")[1] is the simplest aminoalcohol and has the chemical formula of CH5NO. It contains both a primary amine and a primary alcohol. With both groups at the same carbon atom, it is also the simplest hemiaminal (derived from formaldehyde and ammonia).[2] Like other amines, methanolamine acts as a weak base.[3]

In aqueous solution, methanolamine may decompose into formaldehyde and ammonia.[4]
