Surface-active agents, or surfactants, are detersive chemicals characterized by having two different moieties, one polar and the other nonpolar, at opposite ends of a single molecule. The polar moiety is referred to as hydrophilic or lipophobic, and the nonpolar as hydrophobic or lipophilic. The nonpolar end is generally a long-chain hydrocarbon, which can be linear, branched, or aromatic. Surfactants are broadly categorized as an-ionic, cationic, nonionic, or amphoteric (zwitterionic) according to the nature of the hydrophile yielded in aqueous solution. In currently marketed household, personal, and industrial cleaners, anionic surfactants are the most common class.
