Abstract

Treatment of an amide with an alkyl or substituted alkyl halide in the presence of a weak base in a one-pot reaction leads to crystalline quaternary ammonium halides with reasonable chemical yields; some of the compounds show low melting points and a liquid range of over 50-100°C before decomposition.
