Project Description

Hard Surface Quaternary Compounds


I would like to learn more about quaternary ammonium compounds used in hard surfaces cleaning materials. In particular, I am looking to gain insight and assess considerations or factors that influence the selection of quaternary compounds that are not yet EPA approved. Ultimately, I would like to understand the regulatory approval pathways and how the choice of quaternary compound impacts this process. The ideal candidate will be able to discuss trade-offs associated with particular cleansing choices related to bacteria and Covid-19.
