What Is a Nonionic Surfactant?


A non-ionic surfactants is a material that can greatly reduce the surface tension of water when used in very low concentrations. They do not ionize in aqueous solutions because their hydrophilic group is of a non-dissociable. Examples include alcohol, phenol, ether, ester and amide.
