What is the Surfactant ？
Any substance that dissolves in water and can significantly reduce the surface energy of water is called a surface-active agent (SAA).
Traditionally, surfactants are a class of substances that can significantly reduce surface (boundary) surface tension even at very low concentrations. With the deepening of the research on surfactants, it is generally believed that as long as substances that can significantly change surface (boundary) surface properties or related properties at lower concentrations can be classified as surfactants.
Surfactants are natural, such as phospholipids, choline, proteins, etc., but more are synthetic.
Surfactant molecules have unique amphiphilic properties: a polar group that is hydrophilic at one end, such as -COOH, -SO3H, -NH2; a non-polar group that is lipophilic, such as R- (alkyl) Ar- (aryl)
Surfactant Mode of Action
Through the affinity of different parts of the molecule for the two phases, the two phases are regarded as components of the current phase, and the molecules are arranged between the two phases so that the surface of the two phases is equivalent to the inside of the molecule. This reduces surface tension.
Surfactant Application Range
Surfactants have a series of physical and chemical effects such as wetting or anti-sticking, emulsification or demulsification, foaming or defoaming, solubilization, dispersion, washing, anti-corrosion, anti-static and corresponding practical applications, and have become flexible and diverse widely used fine chemical products.
In agriculture: The surfactant can be used insolubilization, wetting, emulsification, foaming. Dora presents the natural surfactants to meet the standard of organic agriculture, ensure the organic throughout.
