Preparation of tetradecyldimethylbenzylammonium chloride
Include 40.00 kg (166.0 mol) of tetradecyldimethyltertiary amine, 19.96 kg (157.7 mol) of benzyl chloride and 200.00 kg of acetonitrile right into the 500L response pot, and mix at 60 ° C for 4h. After that amazing to -10 ° C. After the solid precipitated, it was filtered and dried out to acquire 53.50 kg of white strong, with a full yield of 92.3%. The pureness of tetradecyldimethylbenzyl ammonium chloride is 99.6%.

Preparation of cetyldimethylbenzyl ammonium chloride
Add 6.00 kg (22.3 mol) of cetyldimethyl tertiary amine, 2.82 kg (22.3 mol) of benzyl chloride and 18.00 kg of ethanol into the 50L feedback pot, stir for 6 hours at 40 ° C and after that cool off to – 5 ° C.
