Foaming properties of selected surfactants

 

Key words:
surfactants, foamability, personal care products.

 

Summary
This paper presents results of our measurements of foaming properties aqueous solutions of selected surfactants. We have measured volumes of foam column created in aqueous solutions of the tested surfactants SDS, CTAB, CAPB and Tween 80 at 6 different concentrations. Foaming properties of the aqueous solutions of these compounds were set in a glass apparatus using the Ross-Miles’ method. Among tested surfactants that highest foaming ability we have observed for CAPB solutions whereas the opposite observations were made for aqueous Tween 80 solutions. The most stable foam ids produced in aqueous SDS solutions, while the least stable foam can be obtained in aqueous solutions of CABP.
