Polyoxyethylene isotridecyl ether carboxylic acid, sodium salt
Anionic surfactants-Carboxylate
Structural Formula
R: iso-C13.
Appearance: (1), white paste or soft solid; or solid; (2), colorless to pale yellow liquid or viscous liquid.
Solubility: soluble in water.
Stability: stable. stable to acid, alkali, hard water.
Risk: irritation, low irritation to skin, eye.
Ecology: may be hazardous to environment. Water body should be given special attention.
Biodegradability: biodegradable.
Characteristics: excellent cleansing, wetting, permeating, solubilizing, dispersing, emulsifying, foaming, foam stabilizing abilities. resistance to high concentrations of alkali. resistance to oxidants. resistance to hard water. resistance to high temperature. mild surfactant, can reduce irritation of other surfactants. Under acidic conditions, does not affect cleansing, foaming effect. good compatibility. can be used with cationic surfactants. foaming ability lower than sodium trideceth carboxylate; permeating, wetting ability higher than sodium trideceth carboxylate. for textile industry, be roughly equal to secondary alkyl sulfonate; or slightly better than secondary alkyl sulfonate.
Notes: can be used in children cleaning products.
