Polyoxyethylene alkylether carboxylic acids: fundamental studies on multifunctional surfactants

Polyoxyethylene alkylether carboxylic acids are a highly versatile class of surfactants.

The molecule can be subdivided into three main parts: the lipophilic alkyl chain, which can vary in length and degree of insaturation; the polyoxyethylene block, and the terminal caborxylic acid, whose degree of ionization depends on solutions pH.

This class of surfactants combines the advantages of nonionic and ionic tensides. They tolerate hard water, respond to temperature, and their HLB values can be easily varied, but are water soluble at high temperature, and exhibit a charged headgroup at pH > 4.0. From a fundamental
science perspective, polyoxyethylene alkylether carboxylic acids are highly interesting building blocks in the colloidal playground. Given their high versatility, an incredible variety of responsive aggregates can be obtained when mixed with oppositely charged polymers, e.g., the biopolycation chitosan.

In this contribution, the basic physico-chemical properties of polyoxyethylene alkylether carboxylic acids will be presented and rationalized in term of simple but powerful concepts from colloidal chemistry. More complex self-assembled systems are obtained in mixture of polyoxyethylene alkylether carboxylic acids and chitosan, which strongly vary in structure, functionality, and field of application[13]. To conclude, we show an elegant way of separating pollutants from an aqueous solutions by exploiting the pH and temperature responsive properties of polyoxyethylene alkylether carboxylic acids[4-5].

MES – Metilestere Solfonato: presente e futuro

A distanza di quasi quarant’anni dai primi studi sperimentali, l’utilizzo di Metilesteri Solfonati (MES) in detergenza rimane limitato in termini di volume ed aree di applicazione.

Frenato dalla complessità del suo chimismo e da dinamiche economiche sfavorevoli nella supply chain della materia prima, questo tensioattivo anionico può oggi contare su una tecnologia consolidata e su una maggior consapevolezza da parte degli utilizzatori delle sue peculiarità distintive.

La presentazione si propone di ripercorrere l’evoluzione storica del MES, ponendo l’accento in particolare sullo sviluppo delle caratteristiche della materia prima e del prodotto, così come sui trend economici ed applicativi che, in un futuro prossimo, potrebbero rilanciarne l’interesse in ambito industrial.

Autorizzazioni BPR dei disinfettanti – le sfide

Con la graduale eliminazione delle misure transitorie e l'attuazione del regolamento sui biocidi (BPR), le aziende, in particolare le PMI, si trovano ad affrontare una serie di sfide nella richiesta di autorizzazione dei prodotti. Questa presentazione offre una panoramica delle difficoltà nel soddisfare gli obblighi del BPR, concentrandosi sui disinfettanti concentrati, le formulazioni RTU e le salviettine. Lonza è in grado di supportare le aziende che intendono commercializzare i propri biocidi sul mercato UE offrendo prodotti biocidi, autorizzazioni di uno stesso biocida, nonché supporto normativo e consulenza durante tutto il processo.

Improvement of Bleaching Power in Phosphate-free Automatic Dishwashing (ADW) Products

Bleaching power is a key area of cleaning performance of an ADW product, for instance for removing stubborn stains like tea. Large performance differences still exist between ADW products worldwide. Important factors influencing the bleach action are the bleach system used and the pH of the wash liquor.

The bleach system typically comprises a bleach compound, a bleach activator (e.g. TAED) and a bleach catalyst (e.g. Mn catalyst). A very important factor, besides performance level, is the robustness of the bleach system upon storage in the ADW product, especially at high temperatures.

The functions alkalinity and buffering capacity have been provided by phosphates. However, environmental considerations on the impact of phosphates in waste water led to the removal of these chemicals in ADW detergents. Alternatives chemicals providing these functions are necessary.

In this study, the bleach system sodium percarbonate / tetraacetylethylendiamine (TAED) /MnTACN was evaluated in combination with the builder layered sodium disilicate. The combination results in a significant improvement of bleach performance.

In addition, it is shown that the granulation and coating of the bleach catalysts with specific ingredients leads to improved flexibility and stability of bleach catalysts in ADW formulations.

HYDRODIS® RANGE: benefits and improvement in comparison with traditional scale inhibitors

In all detergent formulations, the use of an effective chelating agent to prevent scaling, remove existing incrustation and preserve the surfactant functionalities is of primary importance.

In this applicative segment, Bozzetto proposes the range of polymeric phosphonates named HYDRODIS®. They demonstrate high dispersing power and improved threshold effect compared to standard phosphonates or dispersing polymers. They can be used as scale-control and anti-redepositing agents in both I&I and domestic detergency.”
