Please note the time zone for the webinar is CDT (Chicago, USA).

Few surfactant chemists understand how to use Siliphillic Polymers as surfactant in aqueous or oil-based systems. Dimethicone is simply another phase (other than oil or water) that has unique properties that can be placed into polymers to provide unique properties (for example surface tension of 20 dynes/cm). The AOCS Rosen Award was given for this type of molecule in 1996, but little overlap developed after that. The Soap and Detergents Association also provided an award in 1998 for the technology. This webinar seeks to bring this technology to AOCS and use it to make polymeric surfactants with oil / water and silicone moieties. In this presentation, you will gain an understanding of silicone chemistr and hybrid silicone oil technology and chemistry. You will also learn how to use Siliphilic Polymers as surfactant in aqueous systems (PEG Dimethicone) and in oil systems (Alkyl Dimethicone).
