Lapyrium, or lapirium, as the chloride salt lapirium chloride (INN) or lapyrium chloride (USAN), is a cationic surfactant that is used in personal care products as a biocide and antistatic agent.[2] It is also used in waste-water treatment and corrosion inhibition formulations. It is primarily used as the chloride salt, lapyrium chloride.
