General description

Tetramethylammonium chloride is a quaternary ammonium salt commonly used as a catalyst due to its thermal stability and also tolerance towards strong aqueous bases or nucleophiles.


Tetramethylammonium chloride along with N-hydroxyphthalimide and xanthone may be used as an efficient chloride catalytic system for the aerobic oxidation of hydrocarbons to form the corresponding oxygenated compounds. It may also be used as a phase transfer catalyst for the synthesis of aryl fluorides via selective chloride/fluoride exchange reaction of activated aryl chlorides with potassium fluoride in solid-liquid phase.

A solid understanding of the molecular-level mechanisms responsible for zeolite crystallization remains one of the most challenging issues in modern zeolite science. Here we investigated the formation pathway for high-silica LTA zeolite crystals in the simultaneous presence of tetraethylammonium (TEA(+))

Biological functions depend on biomolecular assembly processes. Assemblies of lipid bilayers, actins, microtubules, or chromosomes are indispensable for cellular functions. These hierarchical assembly processes are reasonably predictable by understanding chemical structures of the defined building blocks and their interactions. However

The Fbw7 tumor suppressor targets a broad network of proteins for ubiquitylation. Here we show critical functions for Fbw7 dimerization in regulating the specificity and robustness of degradation. Dimerization enables Fbw7 to target substrates through concerted binding to two suboptimal
