Dispersants, usually blending with several surfactants and a solvent, are used to enhance oil spill dispersion as small droplets in water column. Although there is growing acceptance of dispersants as a counter measure to marine oil spill around the world, the two major issues with the dispersants are their toxicity to marine life and dispersion effectiveness (DE) for crude oil. To develop more efficient and less toxic dispersants, three dispersants of hexaglycerol esters (hexaglycerol laurate… Expand
