3. Mechanism of action
The quaternary action is consequent to several actions:
on proteins, which causes denaturation;
intervening in metabolic reactions, with action on enzymes at the level of the cytoplasmic membrane;
on cell permeability: benzalkonium chloride is absorbed on the outer layers of the cytoplasmic membrane on which it performs a lysis action. The destruction of the cell is consequent to bonds that form between the quaternary and the cytoplasmic constituents with lower molecular weight.
