Option 1

In aqueous solution the order of basicity changes

(CH_3)_2NH > CH_3NH > (CH_3)_3NH

Amines in water solution exist as ammonium ions. Due to H-bonding 1o amine and 2o amine are more basic than 3o amine.


Option 1)

(CH_3)_2NH > CH_3NH > (CH_3)_3NH

Option 2)

(CH_3)_3NH > CH_3NH > (CH_3)_2NH

Option 3)

(CH_3)_3NH > (CH_3)_2NH > CH_3NH

Option 4)

CH_3NH > (CH_3)_2NH > (CH_3)_3NH
