what was heated with what to produce soap sodium hydroxide heated with animal fats or vegetable oils
soap is a ___ of a long chain of ___ salt of a long chain of carboxylic acid
why did some soap mad eby americam pioneers erode the skin becuase it often contained unreacted alkali
how are fats and oils treated in modern comercial soapmaking fats and oils are hydrolyzed with superheated steam and fatty acids are neutralized
potassium soaps compared to sodium soaps poassium soaps are softer than sodium and produce a finer lather
most liquids for hand cleaning contain synthetic detergents
soaps can also be made by reacting fatty acids with ___ ie. shampoos and cosmetics triethanolamine
describe a soap molecules dual nature one end is ionic, polar, and hydrophilic (water attracting).....the rest of the molecule is hydrocarbonlike, nonpolar and hydrophobic (water repelling)
