Surfactants have wide use all over world. This study summarizes the characteristics and classification of surfactants. Surfactants have wide application in commodity and industry. A large number of surfactant containing wastewater are discharged into the environment, resulting in harming aquatic life, polluting the water and endangering human health. Therefore, it is important to monitor and control emissions of surfactants in environmental water.

REMOVAL OF SURFACTANTS USING RUBBER GRANULES AS AN ADSORBENT
Surfactants are regarded as one of the major and most undesirable pollutants detected in the aquatic and terrestrial environment. Massive quantities of surfactants are being used in daily life and
Emerging pollutants, related toxicity, and water quality decreasing: tannery, textile, and pharmaceuticals load pollutants
TLDR
The objective of this paper was to highlight the environmental risks of three main type of effluents and their relationship with toxic charges that are received by aquatic systems and demonstrate health and ecological risks related to effluent emissions by different productive sectors.
VARIATION OF ANIONIC AND NONIONIC SURFACTANTS PRESENCE IN WASTEWATERS
It has been known the surfactants have been used to remove stains from leather, clothes and household items, particularly from kitchens and bathrooms. Our studies were carried out during eight months
Anionic Surfactunt Determination at the Anzali Wetland, Iran
Surfactant is pollutants that enter in to water ecosystem through industrial and urban sewages. The objective of this project is to determine the level of LAS and seasonal trend in eight different
Synthetic and Bio-Derived Surfactants Versus Microbial Biosurfactants in the Cosmetic Industry: An Overview
TLDR
It would be interesting for cosmetic, personal care and pharmaceutical industries to consider microbial biosurfactants as a group apart from surfactant, needing specific regulations, as they are less toxic and more biocompatible than chemical surfactants having formulations that are more biOCompatible and greener.
Toxicity Evaluation of Household Detergents and Surfactants Using Zebrafish
TLDR
Commercial detergents exhibited various degrees of toxicity, and there was a linear relationship (R 2 = 0.776) between locomotor activity and survival percentage of animals.
Characterization of commercial detergents and natural cleansing agents with comparison of their potential for biodegradability
Background: Commercial detergents are chemical formulations designed to dissolve or disperse grease, grime, and dirt by making them water soluble or suspending it in water. They are best known for
