Morpholine, piperidine, and dibutylamine undergo both 1,2 and 1,4 addition to α-ethoxyacrolein to form a mixture of 3,3- and 1,3-diamino-2-ethoxy-1-propenes. The N-formyl derivative of the starting amine is a side product. The reaction of α-ethoxyacrolein with diethylamine gives only splitting of the C-C bond and formation of N-formyldiethylamine.
