Select this concentrated form of the surfactant for applications requiring higher concentrations or when one just wants to have the flexibility of making up their own working solutions of the surfactant.

General information:
As a nonionic surfactant, it can also be used as a detergent and it is considered 100% "active" and biodegradable in liquid form. It has numerous general uses as a wetting agent, emulsifier or even as a mild detergent.

The nonionic surfactant Triton-X 100 has many applications in a wide range of different disciplines. As a wetting agent in the microscopy and histology laboratory, in the form of dilute solutions, it is used as a wetting agent for effecting certain staining protocols and is also used as a wetting agent for the cleaning of diamond knives.

In the electronics industry, it is used as a wetting agent on wafers in order to enhance and speed up certain procedures and operations. Triton X-100 will leave a thin film on the surface of the wafer but which can be removed using standard resist stripping techniques or with the SPI Plasma Prep II plasma etcher using an oxygen etch.

In the life sciences, it is often times used as an aid for dissolution of protease in water; however it should be used at the lowest possible concentration in order not to contaminate the specimen, contaminations which can effect the MS trace of the resulting solution.

It is also commonly used in some formulations for emulsion polymerizations.
