Mixed Short Chain Alkyl Imidazoline, AEEA-based Imidazoline

Cola®Zoline 1210 is an imidazoline based on short-chain mixed fatty acids and AEEA. Cola®Zolines, chemically described as 1–hydroxyethyl 2–alkyl imidazolines, are classified as cationic surface-active agents. Cola®Zolines and their acid salts offer the following functional properties: wetting, emulsifying, detergency, thickening, moisture displacing, corrosion inhibiting, and antistatic effects. These functional properties are useful in agricultural emulsions, industrial cleaners, paints/coatings, plastics, and petroleum applications.

Cola®Zolines are readily soluble in polar solvents and in hydrocarbons; however, they are relatively insoluble in water. The acid salts of Cola®Zolines with low molecular weight acids (acetic, hydrochloric, or phosphoric acid) are water-soluble. Oil soluble salts can be formed by neutralization with long chain fatty acids, naphthenic acids, and alkyl or aryl sulfonic acids.
