Description

General description

Docusate sodium (sodium dioctylsulfosuccinate, DOSS) is commonly used as a surfactant, food additive and stool softener.

Application

Docusate sodium (DOSS, AOT) has been used in the preparation of the following:
• Luminescent ceramics (phosphors).
• Stock solution during the quantification of DOSS in sea food by using liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS).
• AOT-water-isooctane reverse micelle system
It has also been used in a study to understand its effect on protein bioactivity, when it is co-encapsulates with proteins in polymer based microsphere systems.

Forms reverse micelles in hydrocarbon solvents; Suitable for the solubilization of the major myelin transmembrane proteolipid

Packaging

100, 500 g in poly bottle
