SOAP & DETERGENT I) Definition of Soap or salts of long-chain carboxylic o Soap are acids o The general formula of a soap

: RCOO Na / RCOO K R is an group which contain to carbon atoms.

Babylonians made soap around 2800 B.C.

The history of soap manufacturing.
Purifying oils is recorded on Hebrew Tables around 4000 B.C. Ash + Lime – Caustic potash Caustic Potash + fats – soap

Process of making soap ashes or sodium carbonate from common salt is patented by Nicholas Leblane (French).

Michel Chevreul (French) discovered animal fats are cmposed of fatty acids and glycerol ( Causes rapid development of soap & candle.)

Sodium carbonate Na CO is produced cheaply & used for glass making , soaps and detergent.

After 20 years, Ernest Solvay ( Belgian Chemist) developed Solvay process.

Later on, vegetables oil is used to replace animal fats.

 Solvay Process ( obtained from heating CaCo ) is passed into concentrated NaCl solution which is saturated with ammonia . NaCl +NH +H O + CO – Na HCO +NH Cl - NaHCO is then heated to obtain soda. 2NaHCO – Na CO +H O +CO .


C H COONa 2) Sodium oleate. (Fats.III) Preparation of Soap by Saponification Saponification is a process whereby It is also the alkaline of using alkaline solutions. C H COONa 3) Sodium stearate. Properties of soap depends on a) type of used for saponification b) type of or vegetable oils used 2 . colouring matter and antiseptic.tallow from cow) ( Vegetable oils – palm oil or olive oil) For example. Example of soap. Production of soap can be precipitated by adding common salt to the reaction mixture in order to reduce the solubility of soap in water.additives are used such as perfume.Glyceryl tristearates  is a naturally occuring esters  found in fats or oils. . 1) sodium palmitate. C H COONa To enhance the soap’s marketability.

The active substances in soap is carboxylate ions which consists two parts: a) the ‘ Head’ 1. Head of the detergent particle contains a negatively charged ions. charged 2. IV) Structure of soap molecule. is ( like to dissolves water) b) the ‘Tail’ 1. When soap is dissolved in water. it will dissociate and produce sodium ions and ions. There are 3 types of detergent which depends on the charge on detergent ion. Example : R – O – SO Na Divide into two types: ( detergent molecule with a benzene ring) R- . charged chain ( do not like to dissolves water) 2. milder than sodium soap which can be used for bathing.S – O Na R SO 3 . It is a kind of . is a long 3.Potassium soap are softer. is I ) Definition of Detergent Detergent is a . contains the – C – O – ion 3. a) Detergent.

.can be prepared from alcohols with chain Sodium alkylbenzene sulphonates Starting materials . the cracking of petroleum. obtained from lengths of 12 to 18 carbon atoms. RCH = CH .Sodium alkyl sulphate ( without a ring) R – OSO b) Detergent Head of the detergent particle contains a positively charged ion.long chain alkene.Step 1: Reaction with Concentrated Step 1 : ( introduction of the alkyl group to Step 2 : Neutralisation with sodium hydroxide solution an organic molecule) Step 2 : ( introduction of the sulphonic acid group to an organic molecule to form sulphonic acid) 4 . Example : R – N(CH ) Br c) detergent Example : R –O –CH CH OH II) Preparation of Detergent Sodium alkyl sulphate .

. neutral 2.The part of the soap/ detergent anion dissolve in grease while the hydrophilic part is attracted to molecule. Process of the cleaning action of soap and detergent. 4. the hydrocarbon (hydrophobic)soluble in oil/ grease.III) The Structure of Detergent Molecule When a detergent is dissolved in water. agitation during scrubbing helps the process of emulsfication occurs whereby the grease is broken into small droplets. . The droplets is rinsed and washed away and leave the surface clean. . It consists of two parts: a) the ‘ Head’ ( group.Because of the forces of attraction between molecules and -charged heads.SO) 1. Anion consists of a long hydrocarbon chain with a carboxylate group on one end. These droplets are suspended in water to form . the grease begins to be lifted off the surface when the water is agitated slightly.A piece of cloth is stained with grease and then dipped into soap/ detergent water.OSO / group . Oil cannot be washed away from clothing with water only as it is a covalent molecule which is insoluble in water.The droplets do not and on the surface of the cloth due to the repulsion between the charges on the surface. Thus. 2. it dissociates to form and ions. sodium soap dissolves in water to form soap (-ions) and sodium (+ions). carboxylate group (hydrophilic) soluble in water. hydrophobic ( hates water) ions Thecleansingactionofsoapanddetergent The cleansing action of soaps and detergent results from the ability to the surface tension of water. to oil/ grease and to hold them in in water This can be occurred due to their and the . . 1. . 3. ( like water) b) the ‘Tail’ ( long hydrocarbon chain) 1. the ability of water increases. . the surface of cloth is wetted thouroughly. 5 . charged 2.Through this.

proteases. A grey scum (Magnesium stearate & calcium stearate) will be produced in hard water 3. To convert stains into substances. Example 7 . To control in detergent. Do not cause pollution as soaps are made from fats and oils and can be decomposed by the action of bacteria. To add to the bulk of the detergent and enable to pour it at ease.Additives Builders Function Example Drying agents Fragrances Foam control agents Optical whitener Suspension agents Biological enzymes Whitening agents Sodium tripolyphosphate To enhance the efficiency of detergent by the water.H ion from rainwater (acid) will react with soap ions to produce carboxylic acid molecules of large molecular size that are insoluble in water.( water does not contain Mg & Ca ions) 2. Ineffective in hard water. Sodium sulphate To ensure that the detergent in powdered form Sodium silicate is always in condition. Fluorescent dyes To add and whiteness to white fabrics. Sodium hypochlorite (NaClO) V) The effectiveness of soaps and detergents as cleansing agents Cleansing agents Soap Advantages 1. To increase the value of water. To remove stains such as blood. Sodium perborate To make the fabrics whiter and more beautiful. Carboxymethylcellulose To prevent dirt particles removed from (CMC) onto cleaned fabrics. Amylases . 2.( exist as molecules & do not have hydrophilic ends) . Disadvantages 1. To break down and protein molecules cellulases and lipases in food stains. Not effective in acid water. To add to both detergent and fabrics. very effective in soft water to wash clothes.

1. Additives (sodium hypochlorite ) releases chlorine gas that is highly toxic and kills aquatic life. 8 . non-biodegradable 2. effective in soft water and hard water. effective in acidic water as H ions is not combine with detergent ions. Decrease in oxygen content in water and the aquatic lives are given the harm. ( magnesium salt and calcium salts are formed aand soluble in water) ( scum is not formed) 2.structure of hydrocarbon chain can be modified to produce detergent. Synthetic cleansing agents . 5. fish and other aquatic lives face the death. 3. a lot of foam will be produced in water that prevent oxygen from dissolving in water. 3. water pollution occurs.Detergent 1.As a result.( phosphates in detergents) 4.

Food additives  Be wise when we consume the food with food additives. detergents . poor coordination and light headedness.the examples of drugs are ectasy and ice. food additives and medicine play an important role in our life . D) THE EXISTENCE OF CHEMICALS The chemicals for consumers such as soap. tremor and less rrest as well as sedation(more clmer/sleepy) i) Barbituarates To sedate. Some proper management of these chemicals :Detergents  Wear gloves when working with strong detergents to protect your hands . To treat psychiatrie illness such as Cause mild.  Do not take medicine prescribed for someone else . sleeplessness.  Use biodegradable detergents . respiratory difficulties. . constipation.  Avoid consuming too much salt and sugar .Antidepressants Medicine used primarily in the treatment of depression. they can contribute negative effects to our health and the environment if these chemicals are not used wisely . Antipsychotic i) chlorpromazine ii) haloperidol iii) clozapine Cause sleep (high dose) Cause addiction and habit forming Cause death. dry mouth.

 Do not overdose .  Keep away from children .  Follow your doctor ’s instruction for taking medicine . Intensive scientific research must be carried out to produce new substances and this takes more time . . Check for expiry date . Scientists must patient and persevere for their research and development to produce new chemicals in future .
