Laundry detergent From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search Laundry powder Laundry detergent,

or washing powder, is a substance that is a type of detergent (cleaning agent) that is added for cleaning laundry. In common usage, "detergen t" refers to mixtures of chemical compounds including alkylbenzenesulfonates, wh ich are similar to soap but are less affected by "hard water." In most household contexts, the term detergent refers to laundry detergent vs hand soap or other types of cleaning agents. Most detergent is delivered in powdered form.[1] Contents [hide] 1 History 2 Chemistry of detergents 3 Components o 3.1 Builders o 3.2 Bleach o 3.3 Enzymes o 3.4 Other ingredients 4 Environmental concerns 5 References 6 External links [edit] History From ancient times, chemical additives were recognized for their ability to faci litate the mechanical washing with water. The Italians used a mix of sulfur and water with charcoal to clean cloth. Egyptians added ashes and silicates to softe n water. Soaps were the first detergents.[2] The detergent effects of certain sy nthetic surfactants were noted in Germany in 1917, in response to shortages of s oap during World War I. In the 1930s, commercially viable routes to fatty alcoho ls were developed, and these new materials were converted to their sulfate ester s, key ingredients in the commercially important German brand FEWA, produced by BASF, and Dreft, the US brand produced by Procter and Gamble. Such detergents we re mainly used in industry until after World War II. By then, new developments a nd the later conversion of aviation fuel plants to produce tetrapropylene, used in household detergents, caused a fast growth of domestic use in the late 1940s. [3] The use of enzymes for laundry was introduced in the early part of the 1900s by Otto Rohm. Only in the latter part of the century with the availability of therm ally robust bacterial enzymes did this technology become mainstream.[4] At the present time, soap has largely been displaced as the main cleaning agent in developed countries. Soap is, by weight, relatively ineffective, and it is hi ghly sensitive to deactivation by hard water. By the 1950s, soap had almost been completely replaced by branched alkylbenzenesulfonates, but these detergents we re found to be poorly biodegradable. Linear alkylbenzenesulfonates (LABs), howev er, proved to be both highly effective in cleaning and more biodegradable than t he branched relatives. LABs remain the main detergents used domestically. Other detergents that have been developed include the linear alkylsulfonates and olefi nsulfonates, which also resist deactivation by hard water. Both remain specialty products, for example only an estimated 60 million kilograms of the sodium alky lsulfonates are produced annually.[5] During the early development of non-soap s urfactants as commercial cleaning products, the term syndet, short for synthetic detergent, was promoted to indicate the distinction from so-called natural soap s. [edit] Chemistry of detergents Main article: detergent Many kinds of molecules and ions can serve as high-efficiency surfactants. They are often classified according to the charge of the molecule or ion, the three m

ain classes being anionic, neutral, and cationic detergents. Anionic detergents are most commonly encountered for domestic laundry detergents. Detergents are io ns or molecules that contain both polar and nonpolar components. The polar compo nent allows the detergent to dissolve in the water, whereas the nonpolar portion solubilizes greasy ("hydrophobic") materials that are the usual target of the c leaning process. An estimated 6 billion kilograms of detergents are produced ann ually for domestic markets.[5] Three kinds of anionic detergents: branch alkylbenzenesulfonates, linear alkylbe nzenesulfonates, and a soap. [edit] Components Modern detergent formulations - the entire product vs just the surfactant - cont ain several components. Three main ingredients are builders (50% by weight, appr oximately), the alkylbenzenesulfonate surfactant (15%), and bleaches (7%).[5] [edit] Builders Builders are water softeners. These chemical compounds are agents that remove ca lcium ions by complexation or precipitation. Typical builders are sodium carbona te, complexation agents, soap, and zeolites. They function by sequestering or pr ecipitating the problematic ions. One of the most common builders is sodium trip hosphate, which is used on very large scale for this application. [edit] Bleach Main article: Bleach The main targets of bleaches are of vegetable origin include chlorophyll, anthoc yanin dyes, tannins, humic acids, and carotenoid pigments. Most bleaches in laun dry detergents are oxidizers, e.g., sodium perborate or sodium hypochlorite, In addition, other agents are added as "bleach activators", to enhance the effectiv eness of the bleaching agent; a popular one is tetraacetylethylenediamine. [edit] Enzymes Main article: Biological detergent Many laundry detergents contain enzymes. The amounts of enzyme can be up to abou t 2% by weight of the product. These agents are required to degrade recalcitrant stains composed of proteins, fats, or carbohydrates. Each type of stain require s a different type of enzyme, i.e., protease for proteins, lipases for greases, and amylases for carbohydrates. [edit] Other ingredients Many other ingredients are added depending on the specific application. Such add itives modify the foaming properties of the product by either stabilizing or cou nteracting foam. Other ingredients increase or decrease the viscosity of the sol ution, or solubilize other ingredients. Corrosion inhibitors counteract damage t o washing equipment. "Dye transfer inhibitors" prevent dyes from one article fro m colouring other items. "Antiredeposition agents" are used to prevent fine soil particles from reattaching to the product being cleaned. Carboxymethyl cellulos e is used for this purpose.[5] A number of ingredients affect aesthetic properties of the item to be cleaned or the detergent itself before or during use. These agents include optical brighte ners, fabric softeners, and colourants. A variety of perfumes are also component s of modern detergents, provided that they are compatible with the other compone nts and do not affect the colour of the cleaned item. The perfumes are typically a mixture of many compounds, a popular component being cyclohexyl salicylate, w hich is related to oil of wintergreen.[5] [edit] Environmental concerns Early in the introduction of sulfonate-based detergents, concerns were voiced ov er the low rates of biodegradation of the branched alkylbenzenesulfonates. This problem was addressed by the introduction of linear alkylbenzenesulfonates.[6] A more profound problem arises from the heavy use of sodium triphosphate, which can comprise up to 50% by weight of detergents. The discharge of soluble phospha tes into natural waters has led to problem with eutrophication of lakes and stre ams. The replacement of sodium triphosphate by zeolites offers some relief to th is problem.[5] With respect to the phosphate additives, between 1940 and 1970 "t

he amount of phosphates in city wastewater increased from 20,000 to 150,000 tons per year."[7] With the increase in phosphates, algal blooms grew splendidly on the excess phosphorus and consumed most of the oxygen in the waters, killing fis h and plants.[7] In 2004, the European Union introduced regulations to require biodegradability i n all detergents,[8] and intends to ban phosphates in domestic products from 201 3.[9] Australia began phasing out the use of phosphates in its detergents in 2011, wit h an all-out ban expected to take effect in 2014.[10] Pursuant to findings published in 2006 by the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design indicating that liquid detergents are "much more environment-friendly" t han powdered detergents, Israel's Ministry of the Environment began recommending that consumers prefer liquid detergent over powdered ones "for laundry which is not heavily stained."[11] [edit] References 1. ^ Handbook of Detergents, Part A, Editor-in-chief: Uri Zoller.

A detergent is a surfactant or a mixture of surfactants having "cleaning propert ies in dilute solutions."[1] In common usage, "detergent" refers to alkylbenzene sulfonates, a family of compounds that are similar to soap but are less affected by hard water. In most household contexts, the term detergent by itself refers specifically to laundry detergent or dish detergent, as opposed to hand soap or other types of cleaning agents. Detergents are commonly available as powders or concentrated solutions. Detergents work because they are amphiphilic - partly hy drophilic (polar) and partly hydrophobic (non-polar). Their dual nature facilita tes the mixture of hydrophobic compounds (like oil and grease) with water. Becau se air is not hydrophillic, detergents are also foaming agents to varying degree s. Completely non-polar solvents known as degreasers can also remove hydrophobic contaminants, but lacking polar elements may not dissolve in water.

[edit] Anionic detergents Typical anionic detergents are alkylbenzenesulfonates. The alkylbenzene portion of these anions is lipophilic and the sulfonate is hydrophilic. Two varieties ha ve been popularized, those with branched alkyl groups and those with linear alky l groups. The former were largely phased out in economically advanced societies because they are poorly biodegradable.[2] An estimated 6 billion kilograms of an ionic detergents are produced annually for domestic markets. Bile acids, such as deoxycholic acid (DOC), are anionic detergents produced by t he liver to aid in digestion and absorption of fats and oils. Three kinds of anionic detergents: a branched sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate, li near sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate, and a soap. [edit] Cationic detergents Cationic detergents are similar to the anionic ones, with a hydrophobic componen t, but instead of the anionic sulfonate group, the cationic surfactants have qua ternary ammonium as the polar end. The ammonium center is positively charged.[2] [edit] Non-ionic and zwitterionic detergents Non-ionic detergents are characterized by their uncharged, hydrophilic headgroup s. Typical non-ionic detergents are based on polyoxyethylene or a glycoside. Com mon examples of the former include Tween, Triton, and the Brij series. These mat erials are also known as ethoxylates or PEGylates). Glycosides have a sugar as t heir uncharged hydrophilic headgroup. Examples include octyl-thioglucoside and m altosides. HEGA and MEGA series detergents are similar, possessing a sugar alcoh ol as headgroup. Zwitterionic detergents possess a net zero charge arising from the presence of e qual numbers of +1 and -1 charged chemical groups. Examples include CHAPS. See surfactants for more applications. [edit] Major applications of detergents [edit] Laundry detergents Main article: laundry detergent One of the largest applications of detergents is for cleaning clothing. The form ulations are complex, reflecting the diverse demands of the application and the highly competitive consumer market. In general, laundry detergents contain water softeners, surfactants, bleach, enzymes, brighteners, fragrances, and many othe r agents. The formulation is strongly affected by the temperature of the cleanin g water and varies from country to country. [edit] Fuel additives Both carburetors and fuel injector components of Otto engines benefit from deter gents in the fuels to prevent fouling. Concentrations are about 300 ppm. Typical detergents are long chain amines and amides such as polyisobuteneamine and poly isobuteneamide/succinimide.[3] [edit] Soapless soap

Soapless soap refers to a soap free liquid cleanser with a slightly acidic pH.[4 ] Soapless soaps are used in an array of products.

This dodecyl chai n is attached at the 4-position of the benzenesulfonate group. Linear dodecyl-4benzenesulfonate anions can exist in six isomers (ignoring optical isomers), dep ending on the carbon of the dodecyl group that is attached to the benzene ring. The isomer shown to the right is 4-(5-dodecyl)benzenesulfonate (4 indicating the position of the benzene ring, 5 indicating the position on the dodecane chain). Branched isomers, e.g. those derived from tetramerized propylene, are also know n (see figure to left) but are not as widely used because they biodegrade too sl owly. A branched dodecylbenzenesulfonate, which has been phased out in developed count ries. Further complicating the description of the commercial materials, sodium dodecyl benzenesulfonate is but one component of a mixture of compounds that feature var iable alkyl chain lengths aside from C12, mainly ranging from C10-C16. Dodecylbe nzenesulfonate is considered representative of the entire class of compounds, si nce the mean number of alkyl carbon atoms in the alkylbenzenesulfonates is 12. [edit] Production Billions of kilograms are produced annually. Given the large scale of the applic ation, the alkylbenzenesulfonates have been prepared by many methods.[2] In the most common route, benzene is alkylated by long chain monoalkenes (e.g. dodecene ) using hydrogen fluoride as a catalyst. The purified dodecylbenzenes (and relat ed derivatives) are then sulfonated with sulfur trioxide to give the sulfonic ac id. The sulfonic acid is subsequently neutralized with sodium hydroxide.[1] [edit] Environmental considerations The salt has an LD50 of 2.3 mg/liter for fish, about 4x more toxic than the bran ched tetrapropylenebenzenesulfonate. It is however biodegraded more rapidly. Oxi dative degradation initiates at the alkyl chain.[1] A foaming agent is a surfactant, which when present in small amounts, facilitate s the formation of a foam, or enhances its colloidal stability by inhibiting the coalescence of bubbles.[1]

Sodium laureth sulfate, or sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES), is a detergent an d surfactant found in many personal care products (soaps, shampoos, toothpastes, etc.). It is an inexpensive and very effective foamer. Sodium lauryl sulfate (a lso known as sodium dodecyl sulfate or SDS) and ammonium lauryl sulfate (ALS) ar e commonly used alternatives to SLES in consumer products.[2] Also, a foaming agent is a material that will decompose to release a gas under c ertain conditions (typically high temperature), which can be used to turn a liqu id into a foam. For example, powdered titanium hydride is used as a foaming agen t in the production of metal foams, as it decomposes to form titanium and hydrog en gas at elevated temperatures. Zirconium(II) hydride is used for the same purp ose.

The industrially pr acticed method typically uses sulfur trioxide gas. The resulting product is then neutralized through the addition of sodium hydroxide or sodium carbonate. Laury l alcohol is in turn usually derived from either coconut or palm kernel oil by h ydrolysis, which liberates their fatty acids, followed by hydrogenation. Due to this synthesis method, commercially samples of SDS are often a mixture of other alkyl sulfates, dodecyl sulfate being the main component.[1] [edit] Applications SDS is mainly used in detergents for laundry and many cleaning applications.[2] SDS is a highly effective surfactant and is used in any task requiring the remov al of oily stains and residues. For example, it is found in higher concentration s with industrial products including engine degreasers, floor cleaners, and car wash soaps. It is found in toothpastes, shampoos, shaving foams, and bubble bath formulations in part for its thickening effect and its ability to create a lath er.[3] [edit] Laboratory applications Bottle of solution of sodium dodecyl sulfate for use in the laboratory. It can be used to aid in lysing cells during DNA extraction and for unraveling p roteins in SDS PAGE. Sodium lauryl sulfate, in science referred to as sodium dod ecyl sulfate (SDS) or Duponol, is commonly used in preparing proteins for electr ophoresis in the SDS PAGE technique.[4] This compound works by disrupting non co valent bonds in the proteins, denaturing them, and causing the molecules to lose their native shape (conformation).

This new negative charge is significantly greater than the original charge of th at protein. The electrostatic repulsion that is created by binding of SDS causes proteins to unfold into a rod like shape thereby eliminating differences in sha pe as a factor for separation in the gel. Sodium lauryl sulfate is probably the most researched anionic surfactant compound. Like all detergent surfactants (inc luding soaps), sodium lauryl sulfate removes oils from the skin, and can cause s kin and eye irritation. The critical micelle concentration (CMC) in pure water a t 25C is 0.0082 M,[5] and the aggregation number at this concentration is usually considered to be about 62.[6] The micelle ionization fraction () is round 0.3 ( or 30%).[7] Aqueous solutions of SDS re lso popul r for dispersing (or suspend ing) n notubes.

Ammonium l uryl sulf te (ALS) is the common n me for mmonium dodecyl sulf te (C H3(CH2)10CH2OSO3NH4). The dodecyl signifies the presence of 12-member c rbon c h in in the molecul r b ckbone which llows the molecule to bond with non-pol r portions of molecules while the highly pol r sulf te he d llows the molecule to bond with pol r molecules such s w ter. ALS is cl ssified s n lkyl sulf te nd is n nionic surf ct nt found prim rily in sh mpoos nd body-w sh s fo m ing gent.[1] L uryl sulf tes re very high-fo m surf ct nts th t disrupt the su rf ce tension of w ter by forming micelles round the pol r w ter molecules.

[edit] Action in solution Ammonium l uryl sulf te, like ny other surf ct nt, m kes good b se for cle ns ers bec use of the w y it disrupts the hydrogen bonding in w ter. Hydrogen bondi ng is the prim ry contributor to the high surf ce tension of w ter. In solution, the l uryl sulf te nions nd the mmonium c tions sep r te. The former lign t hemselves into wh t is known s micelle, in which the ions form sphere, with the pol r he ds (the sulf te) on the surf ce of the sphere nd the nonpol r hyd rophobic t ils pointing inw rds tow rds the center. The w ter molecules round t he micelle rr nge themselves round the pol r he ds, but this disrupts their hy drogen bonding with the w ter surrounding them. The over ll effect of h ving the se micelles in n queous (w ter) environment is th t the w ter becomes more bl e to penetr te things like cloth fibers or h ir, nd lso becomes more re dily v il ble to dissolve nything coming off the substr te. [edit] S fety In high concentr tions this molecule m y c use severe irrit tion to eyes nd ski n. Inh l tion m y c use irrit tion to the respir tory system. Ingestion m y c us e irrit tion.[2] In 1983 report by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review, sh mpoos cont ining up to 31 % ALS registered 6 he lth compl ints out of 6.8 million units sold. These compl ints included two of sc lp itch, two llergic re ctions, one h ir d m ge nd one compl int of eye irrit tion.[3][4] The CIR report concluded th t both sodium nd mmonium l uryl sulf te ppe r to b e s fe in formul tions designed for discontinuous, brief use followed by thoroug h rinsing from the surf ce of the skin. In products intended for prolonged use, concentr tions should not exceed 1%. The Hum n nd Environment l Risk Assessment (HERA) project performed thorough investig tion of ll lkyl sulf tes, s such the results they found pply direct ly to ALS. Most lkyl sulf tes exhibit low cute or l toxicity, no toxicity thro ugh exposure to the skin, concentr tion dependent skin irrit tion, nd concentr tion dependent eye-irrit tion. They do not sensitize the skin nd did not ppe r to be c rcinogenic in two ye r study on r ts. The report found th t longer c rbon ch ins (16-18) were less irrit ting to the skin th n ch ins of 12-15 c rbon s in length. In ddition, concentr tions below 1% were essenti lly non-irrit tin g while concentr tions gre ter th n 10% produced moder te to strong irrit tion o f the skin.[5] [edit] Occup tion l exposure The CDC h s reported on occup tions which were routinely exposed to ALS between 1981 nd 1983. During this time, the occup tion with the highest number of worke rs exposed w s registered nurses, followed closely by funer l directors.[6] [edit] Environment The HERA project lso conducted n environment l review of lkyl sulf tes th t f ound ll lkyl sulf tes re re dily biodegr d ble nd st nd rd w stew ter tre tm ent oper tions removed 96-99.96% of short-ch in (12-14 c rbons) lkyl sulf tes. Even in n erobic conditions t le st 80% of the origin l volume is biodegr ded fter 15 d ys with 90% degr d tion fter 4 weeks.[7] [edit] See lso Sodium l uryl sulf te Sodium l ureth sulf te [edit] References 1. ^ "Household Products D t b se Ammonium L uryl Sulf te". http://househol dproducts.nlm.nih.gov/cgi-bin/household/br nds?tbl=chem&id=5&query=Ammonium+L ur yl+Sulf te.
