Polysorbate 80 FCC

Polysorbate 80 is derived from polyethoxylated sorbitan and oleic acid. The hydrophilic groups in this compound are polyethers also known as polyoxyethylene groups, which are polymers of ethylene oxide. The full chemical names for polysorbate 80 are: Polyoxyethylene (80) sorbitan monooleate and (x)-sorbitan mono-9-octadecenoate poly(oxy-1,2-ethanediyl).


It is a nonionic surfactant and emulsifier often used in pharmaceuticals and chemical industries.
