List of anionic, cationic and non-ionic surfactants
A discussion started in 2001 but continuing through 20182001
Q. Could you give me a list of anionic, cationic and non-ionic surfactants. The chemical names as well as the Analysis method if possible.

Q. Dear :
I am PhD student in Germany and I am working on using a kinds of surfactants as inhibitor in detergent industries.
therefore I would like to get your help to have a list of surfactant.
A. Anjali Koparkar, here is the list of surfactants:
Sodium dodecyl sulfate (sodium lauryl sulfate)
Lauryl dimethyl amine oxide
Cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB)
Octoxynol (Triton X100™)
N, N - dimethyldodecylamine-N-oxide
Hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide (HTAB)
Polyoxyl 10 lauryl ether
Bile salts (sodium deoxycholate, sodium cholate)
Polyoxyl castor oil (Cremophor™)
Nonylphenol ethoxylate (Tergitol™)
Methylbenzethonium chloride (Hyamine™)

Q. Dear sir
I am a research scholar in chemistry. I am working on surfactant. So please tell me the micellisation point of different surfactant. Specially which have micellisation point at higher temperature.

Hi, Ranganath. Two writers have generously supplied lists of surfactants. Please try to clarify in what way those lists of surfactants are deficient for your needs. Thanks!

Q. I'm a master's student. I'm doing work on viscometric study of surfactants under different temperatures but the problem is that being a pakistani student I have to buy the chemicals from my pocket money which is very difficult for me. So please kindly suggest me some cheap cationic surfactants. I'll be very thankful to you.janat hasan

Q. I am a Chemical Engineering student at UMass Lowell, and I'm working on a Nanotechnology research team. I can't fully divulge what exactly I'm working on, but I need help with choosing surfactants, as I can't seem to get the right one. I need one that has a pH in water of 7 exactly, as we need to eliminate hydroxide and hydronium buildup. Thank you for your consideration.Michael Demboske

Q. Dear sir,
I would like to ask you sir about silicon emulsions, which are used in several applications, e.g., textiles, rubber industries and plastic industries. My question is what anionic surfactant to be used in oil in water as a emulsifier agent?

Q. Dear folks,
Can you tell me about substituting Triton X 100 (nonionic) with SDS (anionic) for extraction plasmids/DNA from bacterial cells -- as generally surfactants are used to get cellular coverings lysed. Could the nature of surfactant effect my experiment.
