Additional information

(formation of micelles. The water solubilities of C8-18 AAPB and C12 AAPB molecules based on surface tension measurements are <=400 mg/L at 20°C. All AAPBs are similar in structure, contain all the same zwitterionic structure. They differ, however, by their carbon chain length distribution and the degree of unsaturation (<=20%) in the fatty acid moiety. The content of minor constituents in all products are comparable and differ to an irrelevant amount. Based on the available data, it can be assumed that chain length distribution and degree of unsaturation of the fatty acid chain have a minor impact on this endpoint.
