The chemical formula for the quaternary ammonium salt ethyl triphenyl phosphonium chloride (ETPC) is C20H24ClP. It is a crystalline white substance that dissolves in polar solvents like water and ethanol.

An immiscible phase, such as a polar and nonpolar solvent, can be transferred by a reactant with the help of an ETPC phase transfer catalyst. In reactions of organic synthesis, it can also take a minor nucleophilic role.

Triphenylphosphine reacts with ethyl chloride to form the chemical, and this reaction takes place in the presence of a potent base, such as sodium hydroxide. To create ETPC, the end result is quaternized with methyl iodide.

In organic chemistry, ETPC is used in the synthesis of medicines, agrochemicals, and dyes, among other things. It is also utilised in electrochemistry as an electrolyte for electrochemical cells and in polymer chemistry to make polymeric membranes.
