Dequalinium is a quaternary ammonium cation and bolaamphiphile commonly available as the dichloride salt. The bromide, iodide, acetate, and undecenoate salts are known as well. Dequalinium chloride is the active ingredient of several medications:
The dequalinium dication is symmetrical, containing two quaternary quinolinium units linked by an N-decylene chain.
Dequalinium salts may be used to treat malaria. As dequalinium chloride, it can be used in lozenges to cure sore throats however while this is effective in vitro, it is not effective in cases of streptococci infections
