Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC830


Surfactants are surface-active molecules that are used extensively to lessen the surface tension of every liquid. The broadly used surfactant, generally known for its cleaning property is known as detergent. Surfactants are categorized as amphoteric, cationic, nonionic andanionic. Nonionic surfactants have demand from several applications owing to properties such as effective emulsifying and low foaming. Non-ionic surfactant alludes to a category of surfactant with its molecule which doesn’t undergo ionization when dissolved in water. Non-ionic surfactants have high stability and are not easily afflicted by the strong electrolytes or acid-base. Furthermore, it can also be used in formulation and also has good affinity with amphoteric surfactants, cationic surfactants or anionic.
