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.

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