Compound Information

  • Compound name: Triton X-100

  • Chemical Class: Polyethylene glycol

  • Description: Detergent.It is a nonionic surfactant. Its generic name is polyethylene glycol-p-isooctylphenyl ether. We are well aware of biodegradation which occurs at the interface between diesel and water. It is used in fuel pipelines. The microbial contamination can result in inhibitor/fuel degradation that leads to the unacceptable level of turbidity, filter plugging, corrosion of storage tanks, pipeline and souring of stored products. Hence, biocides/inhibitors are an important aspect in petroleum product transporting pipeline to get rid of this microbial contamination.
