Detergents

Detergents

Detergents, also known as surfactants, are a class of amphiphilic molecules, possessing both hydrophilic and hydrophobic groups. This amphiphilic property allows detergent molecules to interact with both water molecules and non-polar substances in solution. The structure and function of a detergent are closely related: its polar hydrophilic group is usually called the hydrophilic head group, while the non-polar hydrophobic group is called the tail.

Detergents are widely used in biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, and other fields. Its special structure enables it to disrupt the double-layer structure of cell membranes, thereby releasing and dissolving membrane proteins. In experiments, detergents can be used in cell lysis, protein extraction, and purification processes to help extract and separate target proteins. In addition, detergents can also be used to clean experimental instruments and surfaces to remove attached dirt and sediments.
