Description

 

Nonylphenol is a family of organic compounds, a subset of the alkylphenols. It is a useful precursor to certain detergents. These compounds are classified as a xenobiotic and are controversial pollutants. Alkylphenols are subjected to ethoxylation to give alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEs), which are widely used as industrial surfactants. They are used in the processing of wool and metals, as emulsifiers for emulsion polymerization, as laboratory detergents, and as pesticides.
