General description

Benzalkonium chloride is a cationic detergent that is a member of quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs).

Application

Benzalkonium chloride has been used in a study to assess its action on epithelia conjunctival cells in vitro. It has also been used in a study to investigate its effects on living rabbit cornea by in vivo Tandem scanning confocal microscopy.
