Quaternary Amines
Used in contact lens solutions, eye solutions, cosmetics, and mouthwashes; also used in medical and dental cold sterilization solutions; [Marks, p. 236] Quarternary ammonium compounds are also used as algaecides/slimicides (swimming pools, industrial water reservoirs, and farm ponds), antiseptics for cleaning wounds, antistatic agents for textiles, softeners for paper products, and pigment dispersers; [IPCS-PIMs]
Mild skin irritant; Ingestion hazard; [EPA OHM/TADS] Occupational asthma in a pharmacist confirmed by broncho-provocation testing and PEF; [Malo] Allergic contact dermatitis is infrequently documented for quaternary ammonium compounds; [Marks, p. 266] Quaternary ammonium compounds have curare-like properties when concentrated solutions are ingested; Affected patients may have methemoglobinemia and hemolysis and die within 1-3 hours; Elevated liver function tests were reported; Concentrated solutions can cause burns; No data on carcinogenicity or teratogenicity; [IPCS-PIMs]
