Ethylbenzyl chloride (EBC)

​Ethylbenzyl Chloride (EBC) is used as an intermediate for the production of N,N’-Alkyldimethylethylbenzylchloride, an active ingredient for a series of registered quaternary Ammonium compound (Quats) formulations.

Ethylbenzyl Chloride based Quats are cationic materials only for formulation into a wide variety of institutional and industrial cleaning applications, water treatment, gas/oil drilling muds and packer fluids, gas/oil recovery injection water systems and wood preservation products. Ethylbenzylchloride based Quats function as Algaecides, Antimicrobials, Deodorizers, Disinfectants, Fungicides, Preservatives and Sanitizers.

Ethylbenzyl Chloride (EBC) is used in the synthesis of Florazone (4-Ethyl-α,α-dimethylbenzenepropanal) which is applied in the flavor and fragrance industry to design ozone and aquatic as well as floral (lily) notes.

Connect Chemicals has been the leading manufacturer of Ethylbenzyl Chloride for over a decade. EBC is produced in our production site in LinYi City, China, which was newly built in 2014 to extend the production capacity of Ethyl Benzyl Chloride further up to 2500 tons.
