What is Tween 60?

Tween 60, additionally referred to as polysorbate 60 in Chinese, is a lemon to orange oily fluid or semi-gel, with a small unique odor and a somewhat bitter preference. Tween 60 is a non-ionic surfactant and has actually been commonly used in food, everyday chemicals, medication, machining and other fields. There are 2 synthesis approaches: one-step technique and also two-step approach. The items produced by the traditional one-step alkali catalysis technique consist of different spin-offs such as diester and triester, which are dark in shade and also unpredictable in high quality, and can just be used for oil, cleaning, and so on and also textile sectors. The two-step technique is additional split into two kinds: etherification first and afterwards esterification as well as etherification initially and after that etherification. The product gotten by etherification first and afterwards esterification has a black shade, high material of diester and triester, and poor quality performance; The items acquired by the post-etherification manufacturing procedure have darker shade, higher hydroxyl value, bad fluidity as well as openness in fluid state, however greater return of monoesters and high quality as well as performance, and are commonly utilized by domestic and also international makers.

Tween 60 Uses

Tween 60 (Tween 60) has good activity and can enhance the absorption ability of fluid paraffin and also other fat-soluble substances in the human body. It is widely utilized in the food sector as an emulsifier for cream, grease, cakes, sweet and cocoa. Coating of products, emulsifier and defoamer for coffee and also beverages, bread fermentation regulatory authority, emulsifier, fortifier, dispersant for blended treats, wetting representative for semi-fluid drinks, colloid for manufacturing sweet desserts, and so on. If there is research and development of a better food emulsifier, consisting of glycerol monoester, geranyl butyrate, Tween 60, guar periodontal and pure water, the parts by mass of each component are respectively: the glycerol monoester It is 10-20 parts, the geranyl butyrate is 10-20 components, the Tween 60 is 8-14 components, the guar gum tissue is 1-3 components, and also the distilled water is 100-120 parts. The utilized glycerol monoester, geranyl butyrate, Tween 60, guar gum tissue and distilled water, octenyl succinic anhydride, NAOH remedy and also other components can be widely made use of in food, and also can achieve lasting impact on food. The result of emulsifying, as well as its main ingredients are all-natural active ingredients such as glycerol monoester, geranyl butyrate, Tween 60, and so on, so it can be guaranteed that even if the quantity of consumption is relatively big, it will not cause troubles to the health of customers. Large damages, as well as all-natural ingredients emulsification effect is much better.

As a humectant, Tween 60 is used in tooth paste’ as an emulsifier, and also this substance is widely made use of in hair shade lotions, body lotions, and sunscreen lotions. Such as a fish oil disappearing cream, which is composed of the adhering to basic materials partly by weight: 39 parts of detoxified water, 5 parts of sorbitol remedy (70%), 0.4 part of CMC-Na, 0.2 part of imidazolidinyl urea, 0.1 part of citric acid, Tween -60 -4 components, Span-60-3 components, 30 parts of white oil, 17 parts of hydrogenated fish oil, 1.3 parts of significance; when preparing, purified water, sorbitol solution (70%), CMC-Na, imidazolidinyl Urea as well as citric acid are put in a mixer and warmed to 75 ° C with mixing, then the resulting service, Tween 60, Span-60, white oil, as well as hydrogenated fish oil are put in an emulsifier to completely emulsify. When the temperature goes down to 45 ° C, the essence is added., blended equally for 1 day and after that dispensed. There is additionally research and development of an insect repellent as well as antipruritic cream, which is made up of the adhering to components and also parts by weight: dimethyl phthalate; velvet blossom extract; clove oil; benzyl benzoate; boric acid; Glycerol; Potassium Hydroxide; Stearic acid; Tween 60; Boric acid, potassium hydroxide, glycerol, Tween-60, velour velvet extract, clove oil, warmed to 70 ° C, completely mixed, contributed to molten stearic acid, cooled to regarding 40 ° C, added Dimethyl phthalate as well as benzyl benzoate, remain to cool to room temperature and offer.

In the process of starch sugar fermentation to produce monosodium glutamate, after including Tween 60, the return and also financial benefit of the item can be considerably enhanced; Distributing, emulsification, purification, lubrication, defoaming, brightening, etc; Tween 60 has been utilized in synthetic fibers, synthetic plastics, artificial rubber, medicine, oil as well as other elements. If a type of oral treatment solution is researched and established, the dental treatment solution presently on the market can just maintain the breath fresh, and also the results of hemostasis, anti-inflammatory, analgesic as well as anti-allergy are not apparent, as well as the alcohol material in dental treatment service is typically high. It is really irritating when used. The oral treatment solution is mostly made of typical Chinese medication substance extract, alcohol, glycerin, water-soluble menthol, xylitol, Tween 60, chemical, and deionized water. It is made from narcissus, white comfrey, cup chrysanthemum, Jinbuhuan, deer’s ear woodland, honeysuckle, forsythia, alcohol-soluble propolis remove. The preliminary bacteriostatic rate got to 99.5%, as well as after 6 months at 37 ° C relative humidity ≧ 75%, the bacteriostatic price still got to more than 95%. With the growing of study, its application range will continue to broaden.

Preparation of Tween 60

Add sorbitol to the stainless steel reaction kettle, start the vacuum system, heat up to 75-80°C, stir and dehydrate until small bubbles appear in the reaction kettle. Heat and melt the stearic acid, press it into dehydrated sorbitol, stir, add sodium hydroxide at the same time, keep the vacuum, raise the temperature to 170°C evenly within 2h, then control the temperature to increase to 10°C per hour, keep the reaction for 1h, until The temperature was raised to 210°C, and the reaction was incubated for another 4h. Sampling check the acid value, until the acid value is less than 8.5, cool down, vacuum dehydration under sealed conditions until there is no water droplets or water mist on the inner surface of the upper sight glass of the reaction kettle, press nitrogen to drive out the air, and heat up to 140 ℃ after several times of drive away, start Introduce ethylene oxide, control the reaction temperature at 160-180 ℃, take samples to measure the end point, when the cloud point of 1% active substance in 10% brine reaches 58-62, as the reaction end point, cool to 80-85 ℃, Add glacial acetic acid, adjust the pH value to 5-7, dropwise add hydrogen peroxide for bleaching for about 1 hour, cool, and discharge to obtain the product Tween 60.
