Amine additives may decompose to acids and glycol
Amines are an attractive strategy to overcome DOC-related issues as amines are considered to create more homogeneous alkalisation conditions at different pressure/temperature regimes.

Under specific conditions, amines are, however, prone to decompose to acids and glycol, leading to elevated cation conductivities.
It is a matter of debate whether these acids are harmful as long as alkalisation conditions are sufficiently stable.
