Z- Detergent 3-14
Product: Z-Detergent 3-14
Description: Synthetic zwitterionic detergent, which unlike other amphoteric surfactants, retains its zwitterionic character over a wide pH range. This property is attributed to the presence of both a strongly basic quaternary ammonium ion and an acidic sulfonate ion of equal strength. This ionic balance presumably prevents irreversible binding of the detergent to either anionic or cationic compounds.
