About Surfactants:

Surface science is a branch of chemistry which defines the behavior of molecules at or near a surface or interface. This interface can be between liquids, solids or gases (or any combination between them) and molecules which modify behavior at an interface are called surface active agents or ‘surfactants’. Surfactants are responsible for the fundamental physical effects of wetting, dispersion or deflocculation and emulsification. Huntsman manufactures surfactants at plants in North America, Europe and Australia.
