General description

Benzalkonium chloride is a quaternary ammoniumcompound (QAC) that is most commonly used as a phase transfer catalyst,cationic surfactant, and biocide. It has shown promising applications inchemical synthesis, catalysis, and drug discovery.

Application

Benzalkonium chloride has been used as a:

  • Modifier for montmorillonite clay, enabling the synthesis of eco-friendly and proficient heterogeneous nano-catalysts for green synthesis of 5-substituted 1H-tetrazoles
  • Precursor for the synthesis of alkaline ionic liquids, which have been employed as supported ionic liquid catalysts (SILCAs)
  • Catalyst in the synthesis of functionalized quinoxalines in water
