Non-ionic Surfactants Are Now Available at Alfa Chemistry

Posted by Tylor on January 14th, 2022

On January 12, 2021, Alfa Chemistry announces to add a new product line of non-ionic surfactants, which is another step to the efforts of continuously enriching its product lines. Previously, the company has already released amphoteric surfactants, anionic surfactants and cationic surfactants.

Anionic surfactants are recognized as the most frequently used surfactants, while non-ionic surfactants are the second most widely used surfactants in a range of areas such as cleaning, personal care, and disinfectant products as well as industrial processes.

Nonionic surfactants contain no charge and so they are less likely to form a “soap scum” in hard water. “Though less effective than anionic surfactants, non-ionic surfactants also cause less skin irritation for some people. Therefore, most cleaning products usually blend anionic and nonionic surfactants to achieve a balance between cleaning potential and the risk of skin irritation,” says one of the senior scientists from Alfa Chemistry.

Cocamide monoethanolamine (Cocamide MEA), cocamide diethanolamine (Cocamide DEA), fatty alcohol ethoxylates, amine oxides, and sulfoxides are most common anionic surfactants. At Alfa Chemistry, hundreds of high-quality non-ionic surfactants are now available, either to help facilitate relevant research or to support manufacturing projects. Below are just some of them:

Triethanolamine phosphate (10017-56-8), Rhamnose monohydrate (CAS 10030-85-0), 4-Ethoxybenzaldehyde (CAS 10031-82-0), N-Acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine (10036-64-3), Butyl thioglycolate (CAS 10047-28-6), Benzenemethanol (CAS 100-51-6), Nicotinyl alcohol (CAS 100-55-0), Quinuclidine (CAS 100-76-5), Stearyl erucamide (CAS 10094-45-8), N,N-Dibenzylethanolamine (CAS 101-06-4), Triclocarban (CAS 101-20-2), Oxobenzoxazinyl naphthalene sulfoanilide (CAS 10128-55-9), Glyceryl triacetyl ricinoleate (CAS 101-34-8), Cyclohexyl methacrylate (CAS 101-43-9), Diphenyl ether (CAS 101-84-8), 2-Pentylcinnamic alcohol (CAS 101-85-9) and more.

About Application Prospects of Non-ionic Surfactants

Having excellent solubility and only producing a low amount of foam, non-ionic surfactants are used as a grease remover in detergents, household cleaners and dish soap. When combined with anionic surfactants, non-ionic surfactants provide resistance to hard water in textile detergents. In addition, non-ionic surfactants are also used in the cosmetics industry, in paints and coatings and in construction chemicals.

About Alfa Chemistry

The importance of surfactants lies in the fact that they are an indispensable part in the manufacturing of our daily products such as detergents and textile. Having observed the great potentials of surfactants and also having noticed the growing demand for them, Alfa Chemistry now provides a full range of affordable, high-quality and reproducible surfactants for scientists who are involved with surfactant research or for industry manufacturers who need a reliable source of surfactants.
