How to determine the product of this given reactant?

C18H26ClN3 + HClO4 --> (???)
Reactant: chloroquine and perchloric acid
Product: (?)

Please help. I can't solve it. Thank you in advance

Is it correct that the equation is
C18H26ClN3 + HClO4 → ClO4 + C18H26ClN3?

If you use diluted Perchloracid then you get C18H26ClN3 + HClO4 → ClO4- + C18H27ClN3+.

But if you use concentrated one, then producte CO2, H2O, HCl, N2 and crack compounds.

Can you explain why did the H gain +1 subscript in the product side?

It's a neutralisation like NH3 + HCl => NH4+ + Cl-
A nitrogen in the chloroquine attract one H+ so the molecule will be posiv charged.

Is it correct that C18H26ClN3 + HClO4 → ClO4 + C18H27ClN3. Is it a neutralization reaction and it is a double replacement? Sorry for asking many questions. I need this for my report

If you don't wright charges then put all atoms together.

C18H27Cl2N3O4
