    First, are you sure of the spelling, I am not finding anything on it online. Second, what is it used for?

    I think the correct spelling, for what you are looking for is, METHYLETHANOLAMINE.

    It does not look like a trully nasty chemical, but it is bad. Here are soem hightligths of what I have on it from Cameo.

    A clear colorless liquid. Flash point 165F. Less dense than water and soluble in water. Vapors are heavier than air. Produces toxic oxides of nitrogen during combustion. Used to make other chemicals. (REACTIVITY, 2003)
    Wear a respirator as it is an irritant to the respiratory tract.
    Do not extinguish fire unless flow can be stopped. Solid streams of water may be ineffective. Use "alcohol" foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

    If you would like more information on this, let me know. I can pull out more from other sources.
