Quats Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

Quats (Quaternary Ammonium Compounds) are strong germ killers and disinfectants used in a wide range of applications. From disinfectants in operation theatres to toilet cleaners in bathrooms, Quats are present everywhere. Quats' demands have always been persistent, but after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, it shot through the skies.

With the shortage in supplies and disturbed supply chains, the prices also surged during the pandemic times. However, it forced the suppliers to multiply the production capacities, and some permanent increments in supply capacities were made.

In H1'23, the supplies remained uninterrupted, but the demands have now subsided, so the prices fluctuated. Howbeit, a healthy demand and supply dynamic was observed.

According to Procurement Resource, with Quats being an essential commodity, the market performance is likely to remain consistent.

Most quaternary ammonium compounds have the general formula R4N+X and are a type of cationic organic nitrogen compound. The nitrogen atom, covalently bonded to four organic groups, bears a positive charge that is balanced by a negative counterion. There are vast numbers of quaternary ammonium compounds.

Many are naturally occurring and have been found to be crucial in biochemical reactions. Many quaternaries are also produced synthetically and are commercially available. Some of the examples of QUATs are benzalkonium chloride, Alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chlorides and methylbenzethonium chloride.

Production Processes

  • Production of QUATs via Menshutkin Reaction

In the Menshutkin reaction, the tertiary amines are converted into Quaternary Ammonium Salt by reacting it with alkyl halide and a similar reaction takes place when tertiary phosphines are treated with alkyl halides. For instance, triethyl benzyl ammonium chloride is prepared from triethylamine and benzyl chloride.
