Research of partnership for a highly sensitive surfactant sensor for determination of ionic surfactants in household and cosmetic products via ENE
9 January 2016
The Faculty from East Croatia in the field of chemistry developed the highly sensitive surfactant sensor for determination of ionic surfactants in household and cosmetic products, or for monitoring of surfactants in industrial effluents.
This technique is based on the use of direct potentiometry by measuring electromotive force of a potentiometric cell consisting of an indicating electrode (potentiometric sensor) and a reference electrode. The potentiometric surfactant sensor can be used as the end point detector in potentiometric surfactant titrations or for direct determination of surfactants in flow injection potentiometry. The advantages over conventional time-consuming methodologies are: chemicals saving, reduced waste amount, reduced analysis time, ease of operation, lower analysis costs.
The Croatian Faculty is looking for technical cooperation agreement and licensing agreement in order to share technology skills for further development. The offer comprises the construction of a high sensitive potentiometric ionic surfactant sensor.
