Project Description

Chemical NameCholine chloride
CAS No.67-48-1
Molecular Formula:C5H14ClNO
Molecular Weight:139.62


Applications: Choline chloride is mass-produced and is an important additive in feed especially for chickenswhere it accelerates growth. It forms a deep eutectic solvent with urea, ethylene glycol,glycerol and many other compounds. Other commercial choline salts are choline hydroxide and choline bitartrate. In foodstuffs the compound is often present as phosphatidylcholine. It is also used as a clay control additive in fluids used for hydraulic fracturing.

Choline chloride is an organic compound and a quaternary ammonium salt. It has a cholinecation with chloride anion. Alternative names are hepacholine, biocolina and lipotril.

Appearance: White crystalline powder


In the laboratory choline can be prepared by methylation of dimethylethanolamine with methyl chloride.

Johnson Matthey Process Technology produce choline chloride from ethylene oxide, hydrochloric acid, and trimethylamine, or from the pre-formed salt:
