Is Benzalkonium Chloride the same thing as Sodium Benzoate? I am allergic to Sodium Benzoate.

"Normal saline" is a 9 g/L solution of sodium chloride.

Benzalkonium chloride and hexachlorophine are used primarily as hand scrubs or face washes. Benzalkonium may also find application is a disinfecting agent for instruments, and in low concentration as a preservative for drugs

Sodium chloride 0.9 percent and normal saline are not quite the same solution. While they share the same osmolality, sodium chloride contains more salt.

to some degree they both sanitize..isopropyl alcohol dries quicker than benzalkonium...alcohol is more flammable...alcohol does not break down in dirt...they do however sterilize

Dilute water solutions are neutral.

No, saline is water H2O with sodium chloride NaCl, and water is just H2O

Benzalkonium chloride has disinfectant abilities, and has been used as antiseptic and spermicide. It used to be considered fairly safe, but research has found conflicting evidence about its safety.

Normal saline has a sodium chloride concentration of 9 g/L.

Not exactly. Saline solution is sterilized and is a dilution of sodium chloride (NaCl) - meaning that the NaCl is dissolved in deionized water. The solution is 9 grams of sodium chloride (NaCl) dissolved in 1 liter of water.

Benzalkonium Chloride is found most commonly in the household products Dysol and Lysol. There are not enough deaths in order to create accurate data. At worst, it is just a mild irritant.

Saline water is a mixture of sodium chloride and water.

The mineral found in saline solution is salt (sodium chloride).

A saline solution is a solution containing sodium chloride and water.

Sodium chloride form with water saline solutions.

no, sodium chloride is the chemical name for table salt.

It used to be a phenol, but the Lysol they sell in the US contains isopropanol and benzalkonium chloride.

The active ingredient in Lysol is benzalkonium chloride. This is a type of ammonia that is commonly used as a disinfectant.

Sodium benzoate is a white, odorless powder with a sweet taste, primarily used as a food preservative. Benzalkonium chloride is an antimicrobial preservative. It is white or yellowish and ususally has a mild aromatic odor. It is used as a detergent and germicide.Your question has piqued my curiosity...why are you curious about these two very different chemicals? Hope this helps!Julie, RN, BSN

Chemicals in mouth wash: Chlorhexidine gluconate, cetylpyridinium chloride, hexetidine, benzoic acid (acts as a buffer), methyl salicylate, benzalkonium chloride, etc.

Normal saline is the same as our body which is 0.9% saline. Serious side effects can occur if it did not have the same salt content as our body and in blood transfusions the red blood cells could burst open resulting in a very ill patient and even death. Saline is know as sodium chloride or symbolized as NaCl.

Sodium chloride is very soluble in water and form saline solutions.
