What is the difference between "ionic" and "non-ionic" surfactants?


Ionic When the hydrophilic part of the surfactant consists of a negatively charged group like a sulphonate, sulphate or carboxylate the surfactant is called ionic. Basic soaps are ionic surfactants. NonIonic A surfactant with a non-charged hydrophilic part, e.g. ethoxylate, is non-ionic.
