Surfactants reduce the surface tension of solutions but can also change the wettability of solids.
Biosurfactants have similar functionality as their chemical counterparts, but they are biological in nature.

Read about the different components in cleaning products and how they work on a molecular level.
Soil removal efficiency of a formulation is typically assessed by running a cleaning test followed by an analysis of the result. Here we show how these two steps can be run simultaneously.
Here we present a summary of how protein adsorption to a silicone oil/water interface was analyzed in the presence and absence of surfactant.
Surfactants are key components in many products and processes where the surfactant-surface interaction dynamic could be critical. Here we show how the surfactant interaction with surfaces can be analyzed in a time-resolved manner at the nanoscale.
Studying protein interaction with various surface materials and at different solution conditions, the conditions that minimize adsorption can be identified. Here we show you one way to do this assessment.
When, Nouryon (former AkzoNobel speciality chemicals), launched a new surfactant with a good dermatological profile, they wanted to prove superior performance vs competitive benchmarks. As the current test methods were not sensitive enough, they turned to an analysis using QSense cleaning profile.
