Being a quaternary ammonium compound, DDAC or Didecyl Dimethyl Ammonium Chloride, is used as a multipurpose disinfectant and is synergistic with other QACs and aldehydes. DDAC shows a clear to pale colour with an aromatic odour. DDAC used in many biocidal applications, works by disrupting the intermolecular interactions and dissociation of lipid bilayers. DDAC serves as broad spectrum bactericidal and fungicidal that can be used as disinfectant cleaner for linen, recommended for use in institutions and industries. It is also used for the sterilization of surgical instruments, endoscopes and surface disinfection. It is seen that DDAC gets adsorbed physico-chemically at bactericidal level by hydrophobic interaction, onto the cell membrane, where it tends to react with lipid resulting in causing significant damage to the structure and function of the membrane, leading to death. Chemtex Speciality Limited is an ISO 14401, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 9001 certified manufacturer of standard quality of DDAC and has been a player in the global market of the chemical industry for over a period of 45 years.
