Tetramethylammonium hydroxide is used to produce tetramethyl-ammonium azide. It is used as an anisotropic etchant of silicon, as a basic solvent in the development of acidic photoresist in photolithography process, as a surfactant in the synthesis of ferrofluid and as a polarographic reagent. It finds application in the production of organic silicon, where it is used for computer silicon wafer surface brighteners and as a cleaning agent. It is also involved in the purification of some metallic elements.
