Triethylamine hydrochloride, commonly known as triethylammonium chloride, is a ternary ammonium salt derived from triethylamine. It is a colourless, odourless, and hygroscopic powder.


Triethylamine hydrochloride is mainly used in the production of quarternary ammonium compounds for textile auxiliaries and quarternary ammonium salts of dyes. It is also a catalyst and acid neutralizer for condensation reactions and is useful as an intermediate for manufacturing medicines (for example, as a side chain for semi-synthetic antibiotics), pesticides and other chemicals.


Triethylamine hydrochloride is irritating to eyes, and the skin. Ingestion, and contact with skin should be avoided.
