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.

A surfactant which dissociates in water and releases cation and anion (or zwitterions)
Depends on the application but I would say that Linear Alcohol Ethoxylates are the best choice for most uses. POE Straight-Chain Alcohols, Alcohol ‘‘Ethoxylates’
Hi Denis, 3 minutes . . . I'm sorry, it is still too little time so I can develop explanations !
It is short for surface active agent. They are large molecules that are partially nonpolar and partially polar. Polar interacts with water...as nonpolar interacts with grease or dirt

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