  • Offers an overview of statistical mixture design in detergent formulation

The production of detergents is a classic multididimensional systemic enterprise, operating within complex, interacting technological-economical-sociopolitical realities. An ever-changing, dynamic relationship exists, governed by the sustainability imperative, between demands, needs, cost/benefits, gains/tradeoffs, and social preferences. Part F of the Handbook of Detergents presents the state of the art concerning the industrial production of the main "players" in detergent formulation. These include surfactants, builders, auxiliaries, bleaching ingredients, chelating and redeposition agents, enzymes, and fragrances as well as the production of some key raw materials.
