Tetradodecylammonium chloride is an ammonium salt used as a phase transfer catalyst in chemistry. Electric potential difference across cell membranes, known as the membrane potential, plays an important role in the activation of many biological processes.Tetradodecylammonium chloride exhibits anion exchanger properties and has been used in permeability-selective studies of membranes.
