What Is a Nonionic Surfactant?

Answer

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.

Surfactants are wetting agents that lower/relax the surface tension on liquids to allow easy spreading of the same.The term is a blend of the words "surface active agents"

Nonionic surfactant is that in which the active molecule has no electric charge. Examples include ethoxylated aliphatic alcohol, polyoxyethylene surfactants and carboxylic esters.
