CYPHOS®

Family of products that include low-melting or liquid tetra alkylphosphonium salts. These products are prepared by direct quaternization of a tertiary alkylphosphine with an alkyl chloride, bromide or iodide or in many cases with reactive esters such as alkylsulfonates, sulfates or phosphates. They have high thermal stabilities and are used in a wide variety of applications such as phase transfer catalysts (PTCs), resin curing catalysts, and biocides. The longer chain alkylphosphines are also used to exfoliate clays to render them compatible with polymers and monomers.
