Book Description

"Describes preparation techniques of protein-based surfactants (PBS) in the laboratory by a variety of chemical and enzymatic means, production by using different types of amino acids, and marketplace applications of PBS in medical and personal care products, detergents, cosmetics, antimicrobial agents, and foods."

Table of Contents

An overview of the basis, technology, and surface phenomena of protein-based surfactants; natural raw materials and enzymatic modification of agricultural by-products for protein-based surfactants; protein interaction at interfaces; amino acid surfactants - chemistry, synthesis and properties; enzyme-catalyzed synthesis of protein-based surfactants - amphoteric surfactants; arginine lipopeptide surfactants with antimicrobial activity; essentially fluorinated synthetic surfactants based on amino acids or oligopeptides; interactions of amino acid-based surfactants with other compounds; potential applications of protein-based surfactants; current market developments and trends in amino acid- and protein-based surfactants.
