Tween 60 Usage And Synthesis
- Chemical PropertiesTan paste
- Chemical PropertiesPolysorbate 60 has a faint, characteristic odor and a warm, somewhat bitter taste. It is a mixture of stearate and palmitate partial esters of sorbitol and sorbitol anhydrides condensed with approximately 20 mole of ethylene oxide (C2H4O) for each mole of sorbitol and its mono- and dianhydrides.
- UsesTween 60 is an emulsifier manufactured by reacting stearic acid with sorbitol to yield a product which is reacted with ethylene oxide. It is a nonionic, waterdispersible surface-active agent which is very hydrophilic. It is also termed polysorbate 60. It is used in whipped vegetable toppings for overrun and lightness; in cakes for increased volume and fine grain; in icings and confectionery for lightness and syneresis control; and in salad dressing for emulsion stability. It is frequently used with sorbitan monostearate or monoand diglycerides. The typical usage range is 0.10–0.40%.
- UsesLonzest(R) SMS-20 is used as an emulsifier for plastic & polymers, personal care and industrial applications.
- UsesGlycosperse(R) S-20 KFG is used as an emulsifier. Suggested applications: cakes, shortenings, milk substitute, chocolate flavored syrup. Product Data Sheet
- Usesazalide antibiotic
- DefinitionChEBI: A polymer composed of PEG-ylated sorbitan, where the total number of poly(ethylene glycol) units is 20 (w + x + y + z = 20) and a single terminal is capped by a stearate group.
- brand nameTween 60 (ICI Americas).
- Safety ProfileModerately toxic by intravenous route. Experimental reproductive effects. Questionable carcinogen with experimental tumorigenic data. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.
