and where ru=2, 1 mol of a compound of Formula 10 is reacted with 2 mols of a compound of Formula 19.

Of the compounds of Formula 10, the quaternary am- In manufacturing the compounds of Formula 1, organic, or advantageously aqueous, solutions at 20 to 80 C. are used. The end products are as a rule colourless crystals.

The reaction medium, as well as the cation Q and the anion Z of the starting products, must in each case be so chosen that either the salt [QZ] or the quaternary ammonium compound of Formula 1 separate out from the reaction mixture as an insoluble product and that either the quaternary ammonium compound or the salt [QZ] remains in solution. As a rule, the salt [QZ] precipitates and the compound of Formula 1 remains dissolved when working in an organic solvent as the reaction medium, and in the case of an aqueous reaction medium the compound of Formula 1 precipitates and the salt [QZ] remains in solution.

Preferably, the component (a) in the form of an alkali metal salt is reacted with a halide of the component (b). Possible halogen atoms are preferably chlorine or bromine atoms and alkali salts are above all sodium or potassium salts of the organic acids.

The compounds of Formulae 2 to 17 are manufactured by reacting (a) a compound of formula (20) o oat-X 4] or of formula or of formula 2 Y 3) 1 a Q9 o-X-- Y: or of formula or of formula wherein Q, A, A A A X, Y Y Y and n have the indicated significance, with (b) a compound of Formula 19 wherein R R R and R have the indicated significance and Z represents a halogen atom.

The monocyclic benzene residue of the starting compound of Formula 19 can be both substituted and unsubstituted. Halogen atoms or alkyl residues with 1 to 4 carbon atoms as substituents are preferred. R in Formulae 1 to 9, 19 or R in Formula 10 can thus for example represent a 4-chlorophenyl, 3,4-dichlorophenyl or 4-methylphenyl residue.

The compounds of Formulae 2 to 17 are accordingly manufactured by reaction of (a) a compound of Formula 18 or of Formulae 20 to 25 with (b) a compound of formula (26) (CH2CH10),H

When manufacturing compounds of Formula 1 one is thus always dealing with reactions of a quaternary ammonium salt With a salt of an acid. -In the case of the acids one is dealing with sulphonic acids, acid sulphuric acid esters or preferably carboxylic acids. Here both monobasic and dibasic acids can be used such as for example: acetic acid, chloracetic acid, trichloracetic acid, bromacetic acid, propionic acid, 2-chloropropionic acid, 3-chloropropionic acid, 2,2-dichloropropionic acid, 2,2-dimethylpropionic acid, butyric acid, isobutyric acid, valeric acid, isovaleric acid, caproic acid, heptylic acid, caprylic acid, pelargonic acid, capric acid, lauric acid, myristic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid, behenic acid, acrylic acid, crotonic acid, vinylacetic acid, sorbic acid, undecylenic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, oxalic acid, malonic acid, succinic acid, glutaric acid, adipic acid, pimelic acid, suberic acid, azelaic acid, sebacic acid, maleic acid, fumaric acid, glycollic acid, thioglycollic acid, thiodiglycollic acid, methoxyacetic acid, malic acid, tartaric acid, pyruvic acid, 3,3'-thiodipropionic acid, cyanacetic acid, chlorocyanacetic acid, dichlorocyanacetic acid, lactic acid, cyclopropanecarboxylic acid, naphthenic acid, benzoic acid, 2-chlorobenzoic acid, 4-chlorobenzoic acid, 2,4-dichlorobenzoic acid, 3,4-dichlorobenzoic acid, 2-nitrobenzoic acid, 3-nitrobenzoic acid, 4-nitrobenzoic acid, o-toluic acid, m-toluic acid, p-toluic acid, 4-tert.butylbenzoic acid, diphenyl-4-carboxylic acid, salicylic acid, 5'-chlorosalicylic acid, S-bromosalicylic acid, 3,5-dichlorosalicylic acid, 3,5-dibromosalicylic acid, B-methylsalicylic acid, S-methylsalicylic acid, 4-methoxybenzoic acid, 2,4- dihydroxybenzoic acid, 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid, 2,6-dihydroxybenzoic acid, 3,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid, phenylacetic acid, cinnamic acid, mandelic acid, phenoxyacetic acid, 4-chlorophenoxyacetic acid, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, phthalic acid, isophthalic acid, terephthalic acid, diphenyl-4,4-dicarboxylic acid, thiophene-Z-carboxylic acid, furane-Z-carboxylic acid, nicotinic acid, thiophene-2,5-dicarboxylic acid, furane-2,5-dicarboxylic acid, benzenesulphonic acid, 0- or p-toluenesulphonic acid and sulphuric acid half-esters of alkoxyphenylpolyglycols.

A particularly surprising feature of the compounds of Formula 1 is the broad antibacterial range of action, which in some of these compounds extends both to gram-positive and also gram-negative bacteria. Here the absence of odour and of colour of the compound of Formula 1 is of particular value as regards technical use aspects.

The present invention also comprises the use of the compounds of Formula 1 in combating pests quite generally. The use of the antimicrobial compounds is possible on a very broad basis, especially for the protection of organic substrates against attack by destructive and pathogenic (also phytopathogenic) micro-organisms. The antimicrobial agents mentioned are accordingly suitable both for use as preservatives and for use as disinfectants for technical products of all kinds, in plant protection, in agriculture, in veterinary medicine and in cosmetics.

Amongst the non-textile technical products which can be preserved with the aid of the compounds of Formula 1, the following may be selected as examples: glues, adhesives, paints, textile aids or finishing agents, colour pastes and printing pastes and similar preparations based on organic and inorganic dyestuffs and pigments, including also those which contain casein or other organic compounds as admixtures. Wall paints and ceiling paints, for example those containing an albuminous colour binder, are also protected against attack by pests through an addition of the new compounds. The use for the protection of timber is also possible.

The compounds of Formula 1 can also be employed as preservatives in the cellulose and paper industry, inter alia for prevention of the known slime formation, caused by microorganisms, in equipment used for producing paper.

Further, detergents and cleaning agents having an excellent antibacterial or anti-mycotic action are obtained by combining the compounds of Formula 1 with surfaceactive substances especially with detergent substances. The compounds of Formula 1 can for example be incorporated into soaps or be combined with soap-free, detergent or otherwise surface-active substances, especially also non-ionic or cationic detergents, or can be combined together with mixtures of soaps and soap-free detergent substances, with their antimicrobial activity remaining fully preserved in these combinations. Using aqueous preparations of such detergent and cleansing agents which contain compounds of Formula 1 it is for example possible to impart an antimicrobial finish to textile materials on washing, since the active substance can be substantively absorbed on the textile material.

Cleansing agents which contain the compounds of the above-mentioned formula can also be employed in industry and in households, as well as in the foodstuff trade, for example dairies, breweries and abattoirs. The present compounds can also be used as a component of preparations which serve for the purpose of cleansing or disinfection.

The action of the compounds of Formula 1 can also be utilised in preservative and disinfectant finishes of plastics. When using plasticisers it is advantageous to add the antimicrobial additive, dissolved or dispersed in the plasticiser, to the plastic. It is desirable to ensure as uniform as possible a distribution in the plastic. The plastics with antimocrobial properties can be used for utensils of all kinds in which an activity against the most diverse germs, such as for example bacteria and fungi, is desired, as for example in doormats, bathroom curtains, lavatory seats, foot grids in swimming baths, wall coverings and the like. Floor and furniture polishes with a disinfectant action are obtained by incorporation into appropriate wax and polishing compositions.

The compounds of Formula 1 can furthermore be used for the preservative and disinfectant finishing of fibres and textiles, it being possible to apply them to natural and synthetic fibres, where they develop a long-lasting action against harmful (including pathogenic) micro-organisms, for example fungi and bacteria. Here the compounds can be added before, simultaneously with, or after a treatment of these textiles with other substances, for example dyestuffs or printing pastes, flameproofing agents, agents for softening the handle, and other finishes and the like.

Textiles treated in this way also show protection against the occurrence of perspiration odour, as is caused by microorganisms.

The antimicrobial active substances can be applied in the most diverse manner to the textile materials to be protected, for example by impregnation or spraying with solutions or suspensions which contain the abovementioned compounds as the active substance, or by successive impregnation r spraying with solutions of the starting compounds required for the manufacture of the active substances, with the active substance only being formed in situ on the material to be protected. Depending on the end use, the active substance content can be between 1 and 30 g. of active substance per litre of treatment liquid.

In most cases, textile materials of both synthetic or natural origin are adequately protected against fungal and bacterial attack by a content of 0.1 to 3% of active substance. The active substances mentioned can be employed together with other textile auxiliaries such as finishing agents, creaseproof finishes and the like.

The use forms of the active substances according to the invention can correspond to the usual formulations of pesticides; for example, agents which contain the said active substances can optionally also contain additives such as solvents, dispersing agents, Wetting agents or adhesives and the like, as well as other pesticides. In particular, the agents can however also contain a solid or liquid diluent or a solid or liquid carrier in addition to the active substance of Formula 1.

The parts indicated in the examples which follow are parts by weight, and the percentages are percentages by weight.

EXAMPLE 1 40 parts of benzyl-bis-(Z-hydroxyethyl)-dodecyl-ammonium chloride are dissolved in 70 parts of Water and added at 55 to 60 C. to a solution of 13.6 parts of ptoluic acid, 4 parts of sodium hydroxide and 50 parts of water. The mixture is stirred for a further hour at the same temperature and cooled to 10 C., whereupon the product of Formula 101 according to Table I precipitates in the form of colourless crystals.

Drying is carried out in a fully automatic drier at 80 C. for 90 minutes for cotton poplin and 60 minutes for cotton frott, respectively.

In order to test the finished fabrics for their action against bacteria, mm. diameter discs are placed on brain heart infusion agar plates which are inoculated beforehand with Staphylococcus aureus. The plates are thereafter incubated for 18 hours at 37 C.

The inhibition zone (HZ in mm.) arising around the discs, on the one hand, and the microscopically detectable growth (W in percent) under and on the fabric, on the other, are assessed.

The fabric finished by means of the combined treatment with laundry softening rinse agent and antimicrobial agent shows a good soft handle.

Thereafter an aqueous Solution containing 30 g. of 85% strength phosphoric acid and 12.5 g. of the compound of Formula 101 is added to this bath. Finally, the entire solution is diluted with water to a volume of 1000 ml. A cotton fabric is padded in this bath on a Z-roll padder at 20 to C. to a liquor uptake of 80%. The

'fabric subsequently dried for minutes at 80 C. and

cured for 5 minutes at 160 C., then given a preliminary rinse with hot water and washed for 5 minutes with a solution of 1 g. of anhydrous sodium carbonate in one litre of water at 95 C., and then rinsed with water until free of alkali and dried.

In order to test the action against bacteria, 10 mm. diameter discs of the impregnated fabrics are laid on brain heart infusion agar plates which are beforehand inoculated with Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli respectively. The plates are thereafter incubated for 18 hours at 37 C.

The assessment is carried out as indicated in Examples 5 and 6.

The fabric finished by the combined treatment with fiameproofing agent and antimicrobial agent shows very good fiameproof behaviour. The antimicrobial agent and the flameproofing agent do not mutually impair each others action.

Instead of the compound of Formula 101 it is also possible to use a compound of Formulae 102 to 142, whereby similar antimicrobial effects are achieved.
