cetrimide

bacteriostatic antiseptic and surfactant quaternary ammonium compound; active against a narrow spectrum of Gram-positive bacteria; non-effective against Pseudomonas , fungi and spore forms; may be combined with chlorhexidine (0.015% chlorhexidine and 0.15% cetrimide, e.g. Tisept); cytotoxic; not routinely used to cleanse ulcers

antiseptic 

An agent that kills or prevents the growth of bacteria. This term is generally restricted to agents that are sufficiently non-toxic for superficial application to living tissues. These include the preservatives for eye drops and contact lens solutions. Examples of antiseptics are alcohol, benzalkonium chloride, cetrimide, chlorbutanol, chlorhexidine, hydrogen peroxide, thimerosal (or thiomersalate). Other agents that are too toxic to be applied to living tissues are called disinfectants and are used to sterilize instruments and apparatus. See disinfection; ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid; neutralization; sterilization.

These results agree with TG data (Table 1), showing that the total amount of cetrimide cation incorporated into the clay is fairly constant for all clay/water concentrations investigated.
Because the total amount of cetrimide cation incorporated into the clays is fairly constant, as shown by the TG results and the same applied to the spacing between the clay layers, as seen by XRD measurements, the decrease in area may be attributed to structural changes in the organically modified bentonites.
