Applications
Benzyltriethylammonium chloride is used as a catalyst in the preparation of 2-phenylbutyronitrile from phenyl acetonitrile. It is involved in the Knoevenagel condensation of carbonyl compounds with active methylene compounds to give olefinic products. It acts as a phase transfer catalyst used in the alkylation reaction. It reacts with 1H-Pyridine-2-thione to get 2-Benzylsulfanyl-pyridine.

Solubility
Soluble in acetone, alcohol and water. Insoluble in ether.

Notes
Store in cool place. Hygroscopic. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
