  • Plastics could see a second life as biodegradable surfactants

    Scientists at the Institute for Cooperative Upcycling of Plastics (iCOUP), an Energy Frontier Research Center led by Ames Laboratory, have discovered a chemical process that provides biodegradable, valuable chemicals, which are used as surfactants and detergents in a range of applications, from disc more

  • A little soap simplifies making 2D nanoflakes

    Just a little soap helps clean up the challenging process of preparing two-dimensional hexagonal boron nitride (hBN). Rice University chemists have found a way to get the maximum amount of quality 2D hBN nanosheets from its natural bulk form by processing it with surfactant (aka soap) and water. The more

  • Clariant to increase mild surfactants capacity in Europe and USA

    Clariant is expanding production capacity for its isethionates derivatives - Hostapon SCI - mild surfactants to support the increasing shift by personal care formulators and brands towards using mild surfactants to differentiate applications. It also supports the growing consumer trend for hygiene p more

Pop science: Stanford engineers stop soap bubbles from swirling

The spinning rainbow surface of a soap bubble is more than mesmerizing – it’s a lesson in fluid mechanics. Better understanding of these hypnotic flows could bring improvements in many areas, from longer lasting beer foam to life-saving lung treatments. more

Multiresponsive nanosurfactant integrates functions of molecular surfactants

(0:00) Droplets coated with nanosurfactants are hit with a laser which clumps the droplets into a two-dimensional hexagonal structure and rotates them much like gears. (0:17) Droplets are randomly distributed and then a laser is turned on which attracts them together into a bilayer aggregate. Up ... more

The Chemistry of Stain Removal

Stains on clothes can be a pain to shift – luckily chemistry is on hand to help out! A range of different molecules are present in stain removers and detergents to help shift grease and dirt, and they can work in different ways. This graphic takes a look at how we can categorise different types of s more

The Chemistry of Cocktail Foams

Ever wondered about the chemistry behind cocktails? If so, then this mini-series of graphics is for you! As part of the Pint of Science festival taking place in May, I’m running an event at La Raza in Cambridge (UK) looking at how chemistry can be used to make ‘molecular cocktails’. I’ve also create more
