Our Services

Alfa Chemistry can provide custom synthesis of a wide variety of quaternary ammonium compounds. Here, take several typical synthesis of quaternary ammonium salts as an example.

  • Halide Quaternary Ammonium Salts

The mainly synthesis way of halide quaternary ammonium salts is Menschutkin reaction which converts a tertiary amine into a quaternary ammonium salt by reaction with an alkyl halide. This reaction occurs at an aliphatic carbon with a stable, electronegative leaving group (halide). The breaking of the carbon-halide bond and the formation of the new nitrogen-carbon bond occurs simultaneously during the transition state. In solutions, final products exist as separate ions, ion pairs or solid salts.

  • Acid Radical Quaternary Ammonium Salts

Here, take the TBAHS (tetrabutylammonium hydrogen sulfate) for example. TBAHS can be prepared from tetrabutylammonium azide by treating it with potassium hydrogen sulfate and 10% aqueous sulfuric acid in aqueous medium.

  • Quaternary Ammonium Hydroxide

Quaternary ammonium hydroxides may be obtained by treatment of an aqueous solution of a quaternary ammonium iodide with an excess of moist silver oxide. Among them, silver iodide is precipitated. Quaternary ammonium hydroxides can be obtained by filtration and concentration of the filtrate.
