    10.1 Reactivity

    no data available

    10.2 Chemical stability

    Stable under recommended storage conditions.

    10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions

    HEXADECYLTRIMETHYLAMMONIUM CHLORIDE is a quaternary ammonium compound. Therefore it has a permanently charged nitrogen atom with four alkyl or aryl groups on it. Compounds in this group are generally soluble in water and are near pH 7 (neutral). They do not undergo the acid-base reactions typical of primary, secondary, or tertiary ammonium ions. Quaternary ammonium salts often serve as catalysts in reactions. They are incompatible with many strong oxidizers and reducing agents, such as metal hydrides, alkali/active metals, and organometallics.

    no data available

    10.5 Incompatible materials

    no data available

    10.6 Hazardous decomposition products

    When heated to decomposition it emits very toxic fumes of /hydrogen chloride and nitrogen oxides/.

    • Toxicity to algae: no data available
    • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

    12.2 Persistence and degradability

    THE CATIONIC SURFACTANTS BIODEGRADATION IN SEWAGE AND RIVER WATER WAS STUDIED, MEASURING THE REDUCTION OF THE ACTIVE SUBSTANCE BY A COLORIMETRIC METHOD USING SODIUM ALIZARINE SULFONATE.

    12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

    An estimated BCF of 71 was calculated for trimethylhexadecylammonium chloride(SRC), using an estimated log Kow of 3.23(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is moderate.

    12.4 Mobility in soil

    Using a structure estimation method based on molecular connectivity indices(1), the Koc for trimethylhexadecylammonium chloride can be estimated to be 2.2X10+5(SRC). According to a classification scheme(2), this estimated Koc value suggests that trimethylhexadecylammonium chloride is expected to immobile in soil.

    12.5 Other adverse effects

    no data available

    13.Disposal considerations

    13.1 Disposal methods

    Product

    The material can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not contaminate water, foodstuffs, feed or seed by storage or disposal. Do not discharge to sewer systems.

    Contaminated packaging

    Containers can be triply rinsed (or equivalent) and offered for recycling or reconditioning. Alternatively, the packaging can be punctured to make it unusable for other purposes and then be disposed of in a sanitary landfill. Controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing is possible for combustible packaging materials.
