CHOLINE CHLORIDE 96%
Choline chloride is an organic compound and a quaternary ammonium salt. It has a choline cation with chloride anion. Alternative names are hepacholine, biocolina and lipotril.
Our grade is a 96% Choline Chloride white powder readily soluble in water and it can be used to make DES (deep eutectic solvent) or NADES (natural deep eutectic solvent composition. It is highly hygroscopic so we close in vacuum sealed bottles.
Choline Chloride can be used to synthesize eutectic compositions that are liquid at room temperature and is ionic conductor, these mixtures can substitute many water based electrolytes, where water can be an issue because electropotential of active materials.
Depend on compositions, wide electrochemical windows can be obtained, up to 3,5V. Behavior of DES can open the door to many new battery composition and supercapacitors coomposition.
When mixed with the other constituent, we suggest to use a vacuumed jar and then react the parts even with a microwave oven. To obtain a good purity DES, some filtration steps are of advice, using cellulose paper and a funnel.
