What is Tween 60?

Tween 60 Chinese alias polysorbate 60, emulsifier T-60, look is yellow to amber oily fluid or paste, mild unique smell, slightly bitter taste, comes from non-ionic surfactant; can liquify in In 40 ℃ warm water and also numerous organic solvents, insoluble in oil. It is a superb emulsifier of oil/water kind, and has the residential properties of wetting, frothing as well as spreading. The HLB worth is 14.9. It has been widely utilized in food, daily chemical, medication, mechanical handling as well as other fields.

Tween 60 Uses

  1. Tween 60 can be utilized as emulsifier, dispersant, stabilizer, diffuser, conditioner, antistatic agent, antirust representative, winding up representative for drug, cosmetics, paint pigment, fabric, food, chemical, cleaning agent production as well as metal Surface anti-rust cleaning market, utilized as a thickness reducer for oil removal and also transport.
  2. Tween 60 is used as an emulsifier in food, medicine, plastics in addition to cosmetics markets. It can also be used as a part of polyacrylonitrile fiber spinning oil. As a fiber post-processing conditioner, it can get rid of static electrical power as well as also boost fiber soft qualities.
  3. As an O/W food emulsifier, Tween 60 can be made use of alone or mixed with Span-60, Span-65 as well as Span-80. Our nation specifies that it can be used in bread, the optimum usage amount is 2.5 g/kg; the optimum usage quantity in emulsified essence is 1.5 g/kg.
    Tween 60 is a nonionic surfactant. Tween 60 has been used in studies to assess the encapsulation of lipophilic components in surfactant-based colloidal medication delivery systems. It has likewise been made use of in studies to target medicine shipment of doxorubicin-loaded magnetic-vesicles.
  4. Tween 60 is used as an emulsifier in food, medicine, plastics in addition to cosmetics markets. It can also be used as a part of polyacrylonitrile fiber spinning oil. As a fiber post-processing conditioner, it can get rid of static electrical power as well as also boost fiber soft qualities.

Application of Tween 60

Application one,
A method for increasing the yield of pullulan by double-stage temperature control and adding Tween 60. During the fermentation and cultivation of Aureobasidium pullulans, when the growth of the bacteria is in the adaptation period (fermentation liquid OD620<0.5), control The temperature is 32°C. When the growth of the bacteria is in the early logarithmic phase (OD620 of the fermentation broth ≥ 0.5), the temperature is controlled to 28°C, and Tween 60 with a volume of 0.08%-0.12% of the fermentation broth is added to shorten the fermentation cycle and fermentation time. It is 58-63h. This method increases the yield of pullulan polysaccharide according to the different optimal growth temperatures of the bacteria in different growth cycles and the addition of an appropriate amount of Tween 60 to the bacteria when synthesizing secondary metabolites. The method is convenient to operate and has obvious effects, greatly shortening the fermentation cycle , improve the conversion rate of the substrate, and reduce the cost of pullulan.

Application two,
A gold nanometer colorimetric method for detecting lipase activity in rice bran. It utilizes Tween 60 to modify nano-gold, and in the presence of lipase in rice bran, it hydrolyzes the carboxylate bond of Tween 60, thereby weakening the steric electrostatic repulsion of Tween 60, thereby shortening the distance between nano-gold distance, making it gather blue. It solves the problems of complicated process, high cost, slow detection speed and low sensitivity of the current traditional detection method of lipase activity in rice bran. The steps of the invention are as follows: use Tween 60 to modify nano-gold, construct a nano-gold colorimetric sensor, establish a standard curve with lipases with different activities, and apply it to detect the lipase activity in rice bran. The ratio of absorbance at 650nm and 520nm and lipase activity in rice bran showed a good linear relationship in the range of 0.02-1.8mg/mL, and the detection limit was 2.56×10?4mg/mL (S/N=3). This process does not require sample pretreatment, has strong specificity and high sensitivity, and can detect lipase activity in the rice bran production process in real time.

Production Method of Tween 60

Add 330kg of emulsifier S-60 into the reaction kettle, after heating and melting, start stirring and add a catalytic amount of sodium hydroxide solution. Vacuumize and depressurize for dehydration, replace the air in the kettle with nitrogen, start feeding 700kg of ethylene oxide after the temperature is raised to 140°C, and control the reaction temperature at 160-180°C. After the ethylene oxide is passed to the proportioning amount, the feed liquid is poured into the neutralization tank, the pH value is adjusted to about 2 with glacial acetic acid, and finally decolorized with an appropriate amount of hydrogen peroxide, and the finished product is cooled and packaged.
