Concurrently with these studies, quaternary ammonium compounds were emerging into greater prominence by virtue of their activity against micro-organisms. Their germicidal activity was first recognised in , when Jacobs and his colleagues (Jacobs, ; Jacobs, Heidelberger and. The quaternary ammonium compounds are widely used as disinfectants. Some of the chemical names of quaternary ammonium compounds used in health care are alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride, alkyl didecyl dimethyl ammonium chloride, and dialkyl dimethyl ammonium chloride.

P. 1 Quaternary Ammonium Compounds in Cleaning Products This information sheet reviews the recognition, assessment, and treatment of possible adverse health effects of prod-ucts containing alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chlorides and several other quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs or “quats”) used in cleaning and Size: KB. Guideline for Disinfection and Sterilization in Healthcare Facilities () Last update: May 10 of disinfection can nullify or limit the efficacy of the process. Quaternary ammonium compounds are nitrogenous organic compounds used as disinfectants in restaurants, hospitals and homes. The basic chemical structure of ammonium is a nitrogen atom with four hydrogen atoms attached around it. Quaternary ammonium is created when each of those four hydrogen atoms are replaced with some combination of four other.   Quaternary Ammonium Compounds: Simple in Structure, Complex in Application.

The resultant effect is to increase the rate of the organic reaction by enhancing the reactivity of the anionic species and increasing the encounter rate with the organic substrate. Overall yield is increased by an elimination of side reactions. This book briefly reviews the role of quaternary ammonium compounds as phase-transfer catalysts.

Quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs) are antimicrobial disinfectants commonly used in commercial and household settings. Extensive use of QACs results in ubiquitous human exposure, yet reproductive toxicity has not been evaluated. Decreased reproductive performance in laboratory mice coincided with Cited by:
