Isotrideceth Carboxylic Acid
Anionic surfactants-Carboxylate
Structural Formula
R: iso-C13.
Appearance: pale yellow to yellow liquid to solid.
Solubility: slightly soluble to 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 trideceth carboxylic acid; permeating, wetting ability higher than trideceth carboxylic acid.
Notes: can be used in children cleaning products.
