What are the quaternary ammonium compounds?

Quaternary ammonium compounds are incredibly potent, disinfectant organic chemicals. They are used in many products such as sanitisers, odour eliminators, disinfectant wipes and sprays, shampoos and cleaners that are designed to kill bacteria, fungi, microbes and bacteria.

On 19 March the World Health Organisation issued several of interim guidance documents on COVID-19 covering Water, sanitation, hygiene and waste management for the COVID-19 virus and the Laboratory biosafety guidance related to coronavirus disease (COVID-19) which states in section 3 - Use of appropriate disinfectants:

"While little is known about this novel virus, the comparable genetic characteristics between the virus responsible for COVID-19 and MERS-CoV suggest that the COVID-19 virus may be susceptible to disinfectants with proven activity against enveloped viruses, including sodium hypochlorite (bleach; for example, 1000 parts per million [ppm] (0.1%) for general surface disinfection and 10 000 ppm (1%) for disinfection of blood spills); 62-71% ethanol; 0.5% hydrogen peroxide; quaternary ammonium compounds; and phenolic compounds, if used according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Other biocidal agents such as 0.05–0.2% benzalkonium chloride or 0.02% chlorhexidine digluconate can be less effective."

What is the difference between Sanitiser and Disinfectant?


  • Disinfectants must reduce the level of pathogenic bacteria by 99.9999% during a time frame of greater than 5 minutes but less than 10 minutes.
  • Disinfectants may kill viruses and fungi.
  • A sanitiser is a chemical that reduces the number of microorganisms to a safe level within the standard 30 seconds.

  • It does not need to eliminate 100% of all organisms to be effective.

  • Sanitisers DO NOT KILL viruses and fungi.

Test Results

The AOAC or Association of Official Analytical Chemists classifies the product as Hospital grade Disinfection using their dilution test, which achieves a 4-6 log reduction of viruses and bacteria within 10 minutes.
