A) SOAP & DETERGENT I) Definition of Soap o Soap are sodium or potassium salts of long-chain carboxylic acids o The general

formula of a soap : RCOO Na / RCOO K • R is an alkyl group which contain 12 to 18 carbon atoms. The history of soap manufacturing.
Purifying oils is recorded on Hebrew Tables around 4000 B.C. Ash + Lime – Caustic potash Caustic Potash + fats – soap

Babylonians made soap around 2800 B.C.

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 - Carbon dioxide ( 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 3) Sodium stearate. It is also the alkaline hydrolysis of esters using alkaline solutions.III) Preparation of Soap by Saponification Saponification is a process whereby the soaps are prepared by hydrolyzing fats or oils under alkaline conditions. ♦ Production of soap can be precipitated by adding common salt to the reaction mixture in order to reduce the solubility of soap in water. C H COONa ♦ To enhance the soap’s marketability.additives are used such as perfume. CH COOC H CHCOOC H CH COOC H (glyceryl tristearate) + 3 NaOH (concentrated alkali) 3C H COONa ( sodium stearate) Soap + CH OH CHOH CH OH (glycerol) Example of soap. colouring matter and antiseptic.tallow from cow) ( Vegetable oils – palm oil or olive oil) For example.Glyceryl tristearates  is a naturally occuring esters  found in fats or oils. 1) sodium palmitate. C H COONa 2) Sodium oleate. ♦ Properties of soap depends on a) type of alkali used for saponification b) type of animal fats or vegetable oils used 2 . . Fats/ Vegetable oils + concentrated alkalis – soap + glycerol (Fats.

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

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

hydrophilic ( like water) b) the ‘Tail’ ( long hydrocarbon chain) 1. 5 .ol. hydrophobic ( hates water) The cleansing action of soap and detergent The cleansing action of soaps and detergent results from • the ability to lower the surface tension of water.1. • to emulsify oil/ grease and • to hold them in suspension in water This can be occurred due to their chemical bonding and the structure. 1. . CH (CH ) CH OH Detergent prepared from dodecan – 1 – ol is called sodium dodecyl sulphate / sodium lauryl sulphate Sodium alkylbenzene sulphonates Step 3 : Neutralisation III) The Structure of Detergent Molecule • When a detergent is dissolved in water.Sodium alkyl sulphate Example : Dodecan . Oil cannot be washed away from clothing with water only as it is a covalent molecule which is insoluble in water. sodium soap dissolves in water to form soap (-ions) and sodium (+ions). • It consists of two parts: a) the ‘ Head’ (sulphate group.OSO / sulphonate group . negatively charged 2. it dissociates to form sodium ions and detergent ions. neutral 2.SO) 1.

• A piece of cloth is stained with grease and then dipped into soap/ detergent water. carboxylate group (hydrophilic) soluble in water. 4. The droplets is rinsed and washed away and leave the surface clean. IV) Additives in detergents Additives in detergent is used to increase their cleaning power and make the detergent more attractive and saleable. the hydrocarbon (hydrophobic)soluble in oil/ grease. These droplets are suspended in water to form emulsion.2. Process of the cleaning action of soap and detergent. 6 . the surface of cloth is wetted thouroughly. • Thus. • Through this. • The droplets do not coagulate and redeposit on the surface of the cloth due to the repulsion between the negative charges on th surface. the grease begins to be lifted off the surface when the water is agitated slightly. the wetting ability of water increases. 3. Anion consists of a long hydrocarbon chain with a carboxylate group on one end. • The hydrophobic part of the soap/ detergent anion dissolve in grease while the hydrophilic part is attracted to water molecule. • Mechanical agitation during scrubbing helps the process of emulsfication occurs whereby the grease is broken into small droplets. • Because of the forces of attraction between water molecules and negatively-charged heads.

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

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