What is hydochloride?

Responses (1)

Anonymous 4 Nov 2010


The term hydrochloride is used for a kind of salt that is formed as a result of reaction of hydrochloric acid with a base that is organic. Mostly the organic base that is used in the reaction is mostly amines. You can understand the concept by looking at the reaction of pyridine and hydrochloric acid and the resultant substance is pyridine hydrochloride.

When it comes to the use of the substance, you can use it to convert insoluble amines into water and acid soluble. The process is particularly useful when you are creating substances that are used in the medications. You can find several pharmaceutical substances that are prepared by using the process to create hydrochlorides and the substances are used for the quick absorption in the gastrointestinal tract.
