Surface Chemistry: Surfactant Wetting Properties

This post introduces basic concepts in wetting properties of surfactants, with a focus on anionic and cationic surfactants.

Surfactants can modify surface properties for challenging applications, making surfaces waterproof; easier to clean, paint, or process; or increase “wetting” when in contact with water.
