Choline chloride or N-(2-Hydroxyethyl) trimethylammonium chloride is an organic compound and a quaternary ammonium salt. The counterion is chlorine. In the laboratory choline can be prepared by methylation of dimethylethanolamine with methyl chloride. In the industrial Davy process choline chloride is produced from ethylene oxide, hydrochloric acid, and trimethylamine. Choline is a quaternary ammonium compound having a hydroxyl substituent with general formula, (CH3)3N+CH2CH2OHX- . It is a strongly basic hygroscopic amine substance distributed widely in plant and animal tissues. It is often referred to vitamin B complex. Choline chloride is mainly used to stimulate the growth of the domestic animals, boosting up the body’s immunity function. It has prominence effects on improving the quality and quantity of egg and meat. The many year’s application shows that the product is the necessary additive of the domestic animal’s foodstuff. Choline is one of the vitamins, and is the main components of lecithin. The young poultry is not of the ability of synthesizing choline. All the necessity relies on the supply of food. Though food in nature is not lacking of the choline, the applying of the choline chloride will guarantee the rapid growth of the animals.
Manufacturing process: Choline chloride is produced by adding trimethylamine hydrochloride to hydrochloric acid and trimethylamine before adding them to ethylene oxide. The dry powder is obtained by absorbing chloride liquid on selected carrier such as cob meal, silica, and then drying to a lower moisture content.
