Tergitol ™ 15-S-9 alternative for Triton X-100

Triton X-100 is classified as a substance of very high concern under REACH and can therefore only be used in the EU with official approval. Tergitol ™ 15-S-9 is a biodegradable alternative to Triton X-100. The non-ionic detergent contains a secondary ethoxylated alcohol group, creating a “T” -shaped molecular structure.

Application examples:

  • Isolation, purification, and analysis of membrane components
  • Solubilizing hydrophobic proteins
  • Quickly and easily soluble, odorless
  • Compatible with anionic, cationic, and other non-ionic detergents
  • Easily biodegradable (OECD 301E)
