Hard and soft surface cleaners, defoamers in coatings and water treatment. Lubricant in metal working, anti-foaming aid and extender for linear and cross-linked polyesters and polyurethanes.

Features and Benefits

Surface activity is dependent on the EO/PO ratio. Lower foaming, greater defoaming and reduced gelling tendencies relative to Pluronic® surfactants. Terminal secondary hydroxyl groups have lower reactivity and acidity than the primary hydroxyl groups in Pluronic® surfactants.

The interaction between bacteria and surfaces is central to many environmental, industrial and medical applications. Surfactants are commonly used in these applications and can potentially influence the bacterium/surface interaction. The effect of surfactants upon bacterial cell surface thermodynamic properties was


Mesoporous Materials Synthesis

Mesoporous materials are formed by a self-assembly process from combined solutions of sol-gel precursors (e.g., metal alkoxides) and structure-directing amphiphiles, usually block-copolymers or surfactants.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
