Biochem/physiol Actions

Hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide also called cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), is a cationic surfactant. CTAB is employed for extraction of DNA. CTAB method is efficient, cost and time effective for DNA extraction. CTAB is used as a shaping material and reducing agent for nanoparticle generation.
