Alkyl Polyglucosides: From Natural-origin Surfactants to by Ivana Pantelic

By Ivana Pantelic

The on-going ‘green’ development within the own care coupled with international environmental matters, position natural-origin, biodegradable and skin-friendly surfactants akin to alkyl polyglucosides (APGs) in excessive call for. After profitable use in cosmetics, enough info has been acquired to welcome a few sugar emulsifiers into the sector of drug dosage. Alkyl Polyglucosides provides a finished compendium which publications a researcher from the APG-related preformulation levels to formula processing, together with the research of assorted APG-stabilized platforms dermis functionality. This booklet introduces a variety of APG representatives, their merits when it comes to sure traditional surfactants, physicochemical and interfacial homes, attainable interplay with universal elements and numerous characterization suggestions fundamental for the overview of colloidal structures. the 1st bankruptcy introduces alkyl polyglucosides, through chapters on their homes, behaviour, an summary of the patent security mechanisms and guidance for filing patent purposes. eventually, a end surveys overseas patent purposes related to APGs.

  • Introduces the sector of alkyl polyglucoside emulsifiers, directory all of the modern and newly synthesized APG emulsifiers
  • Provides distinctive details on numerous elements of APG-based structures
  • Reveals capability of APG-stabilized automobiles as potential supply structures utilizing a number of version medicines and beauty actives
  • Includes an updated assessment of analysis performed within the box of APGs, facilitating destiny preformulation and formula reviews for researchers
  • Offers a concise and sensible compendium of characterization techniques

2013), and also in current results with a newer representative of this class (Hydroxystearyl alcohol and Hydroxystearyl glucoside). When assessed by oscillation tests, these systems based on APG mixed emulsifier showed viscoelastic behaviour, with distinct elastic (Gʹ) over viscous modulus (Gʺ). Moreover, the uniform packing of the oil droplets positively affected the textural, aesthetic and application properties of the vehicles. This is in some ways an advantage compared with systems stabilized with conventional POE non-ionic emulsifier.

7; USP/NF 35). In fact, it could be said that a whole series of potential uses of surfactants could be perfectly covered by the conventional representatives. However, increased attention given to the environment over the past few decades has produced a growing interest in the field of the so-called natural surfactants. This term relates, in its broadest sense, to surface-active substances coming from natural raw materials. Generally, there are three 22 Behind the Alkyl Polyglucoside-based structures categories of natural surfactants: amphiphiles produced by yeast or bacteria, amphiphiles containing a natural polar headgroup, and amphiphiles containing a natural hydrophobic tail.

Each liquid crystal shows typical textures in the specific colour (with the addition of the so-called λ-plate). For example, hexagonal 35 Alkyl Polyglucosides mesophase can be recognized by its typical fan-shape texture. Lamellar mesophase typically shows oily streaks with inserted Maltese crosses. The latter result from defect structures called confocal domains that arise from concentric rearrangement of plane layers. In some lamellar mesophases these defects prevail. Hence, no oily streaks occur, but Maltese crosses are the dominant texture.
