Research output: Patent


The present invention relates to novel surface active compounds based on polyhydroxy acids. The compounds are of formula (I), where X represents hydrogen or a cation; n is 4 and Y represents a group of formula (II) or formula (III), wherein at least one one of R1, R2 and R3 is a surfactant tail group, wherein the moiety represented by formula (Ι') represents the residue of galacturonic acid, and are generally easy to prepare by derivatization of polyhydroxy acids obtained from renewable resources such as, in particular, parenchymal plant materials. The invention relates to the surface active compounds, compositions comprising the same, methods of production and different uses of the surface active compounds. (l'), (l), (ll), (lll)
