Production of biosurfactant rhamnolipid optimized

Biosurfactants are surfactants biologically produced by microorganisms, presenting several advantages when compared to synthetic surfactants. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is known for producing rhamnolipids, considered one of the most interesting types of biosurfactants due to their high yields, when compared to other types. In a recent study published by Camara and co-workers, the...

Novel surfactant shows good antimicrobial performance

Hujun Xu and co-workers recently published a study on the synthesis and properties of novel phenylenediamine Gemini surfactants. These surfactants are showing good surface activity and foaming properties as well a good antimicrobial performance. Evalutation of surface activity, foaming properties and antibacterial performance In their work, a two‐step method was adopted to...
