Abstract: An explicit construction of integral operators intertwining various quantum Toda chains is conjectured. Compositions of the intertwining operators provide recursive and $ \mathcal{Q}$-operators for quantum Toda chains. In particular the authors' earlier results on Toda chains corresponding to classical Lie algebras are extended to the generic $ BC_n$- and Inozemtsev-Toda chains. Also, an explicit form of $ \mathcal{Q}$-operators is conjectured for the closed Toda chains corresponding to the Lie algebras $ B_{\infty}$, $ C_{\infty}$, $ D_{\infty}$, the affine Lie algebras $ B^{(1)}_n$, $ C^{(1)}_n$, $ D^{(1)}_n$, $ D^{(2)}_n$, $ A^{(2)}_{2n-1}$, $ A^{(2)}_{2n}$, and the affine analogs of $ BC_n$- and Inozemtsev-Toda chains.
