Multivariate Optimization of Biosynthesis of Triethanolamine-Based Esterquat Cationic Surfactant Using Statistical Algorithms

Triethanolamine (TEA)-based esterquats are potential high-value products used as surfactants and softening agents. Chemical synthesis is the typical means to esterify triethanolamine and fatty acids. However, the reaction rate of triethanolamine- fatty acid esterification is usually low under high t...
