In contrast to ammonium halides, tetraalkylammonium hydroxides show two pathways of thermal degradation. If no alkyl substituent with a β-hydrogen is present, the hydroxide anion undergoes nucleophilic attack on the carbon of an alkyl residue to give an alkanol and a tertiary amine, e.g. formation of methanol and trimethylamine from tetramethylammonium hydroxide (see HoubenWeyl, Vol. 11/1, p 963). However, if a β-hydrogen is available, elimination of an alkene along with a tertiary amine is a competing process. Normally, mixtures of alkenes and alkanols are formed (Scheme 22).[‌62‌,‌63‌]
