Description

General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Green Chemistry. This product is a biodegradable surfactant and is aligned with the 10th principle of Green Chemistry "Design for Degradation".

Tergitol 15-S-9 is a linear non-ionic surfactant that is a secondary ethoxylated alcohol. This clear liquid surfactant is compatible with anionic, cationic, and other nonionic surfactants.

Application

Tergitol has been used as a surfactant to study its influence on the formation of multi-phase micro-emulsions.

Tergitol 15-S-9 has been used:
• To synthesize thermally stable mesoporous alumina
• To synthesize porous TiO2
• To prepare Zr-pillared laponite clay which supports palladium catalysts
• Along with SDS, ethanol and water for continuous phase preparations in electrospray emulsification
• In the synthesis of Lath-like γ-alumina and boehmite nanofibers

Packaging

100, 500 mL in poly bottle

Features and Benefits
