Author(s): HAMIRIN Kifli*; NAKASATO, S.*; MASNI Ab Rahman*

Various imidazoline-type amphoteric surfactants were synthesized based on palm oil and palm oil products, The surface active parameters of the surfactants such as surface tension, anti-static, electrical conductivity, dispersing power, wetting power, anti-rust and anti-microbial action were determined. The advantages of palm-based amphoteric surfactants in terms of anti-static, dispersing and wetting power and rust-prevention properties were described.
