Organic phosphoric acid esters
The reactions of fatty alcohols or alkylphenols and their ethoxylates with phosphoric acid equivalents lead to alkyl and arylphosphates and the corresponding etherphosphates respectively.
These substances, normally coexisting as mixtures of mono- and diesters, usually have surface active properties and therefore are anionic surfactants. After their manufacture they are strongly acidic substances, which can be neutralized by many types of bases. The thereby accessible products have good to excellent anticorrosion properties. Personal care formulators use phosphates because of their mildness and skin compatibility.
A series of established standard products is steadily expanded with new types. Maybe the next one will be developed particularly for you?
