Gemini Surfactant 

  • A Gemini surfactant (GS) consists of two conventional surfactant molecules chemically bonded together by a spacer.
  • Properties includes unique structure, covalently linked, better wetting property.
  • A promising surfactants in industrial detergency and have shown efficiency in skincare, antibacterial property, metal-encapped porphyrazine and vesicle formation, construction of high porosity materials.
  • New class of Gemini surfactant has been emerged which composed of two hydrophobic tails and cationic head groups linked together by spacer group that is cationic Gemini surfactants.
