See below


That dimethyl amine stuff is a decent weak base (stronger than ammonia).

#(CH_3)_2NH + H_2O = (CH_3)2NH_2^+1 + OH^-1#

In water, the amine will produce an ammonium ion (Dimethyl ammonium ion) and hydroxide ion. Reaction is basically like Ammonia in water, which produces Ammonium ion and hydroxide ion.
