Join us Tuesday, September 20 at the Norwalk Inn. Don Rick from Alzo will be discussing esters.
99 East Ave
Esters are an important class of materials in the cosmetic chemist's toolbox. Given the larger variety of esters available, chemists often ask "which ester should I use for my application?" We have characterized esters based on physical properties, compatibility and performance to help guide choosing the right ester for the right application - ultimately creating a structure function relationship. Once this structure function relationship is known, the behavior of esters is very predictable. The properties and performance of esters will be discussed - specifically linking performance based on measurements (including polarity, viscosity, and spreadability) to the chemistry of the ester.
