Rhamnolipids

Rhamnolipids are well-known glycolipid biosurfactants that are microbially produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) as anionic amphiphilic molecules, with (hydrophilic) mono- or di-rhamnose sugar heads and (lipophilic) β-hydroxyalkanoic acid tails of varying lengths. Rhamnolipid biosurfactants are highly biodegradable, non-toxic, and may significantly outperform synthetic surfactants in surface and interfacial tension properties and Critical Micelle Concentration. Rhamnolipids provide excellent foaming/wetting properties and can work at extremes of pH, salinity and temperature.

Rhamnolipids have been used in many applications including:
  • Pharmaceutical and cosmeceutical formulations
  • Environmental remediation of hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and pesticides in soil and water
  • Antibacterial
  • Antifungal
