Fatty Methyl Ester Sulfonate (FMES) Market Challenges Development Trends & Competitive Analysis by 2023
Fatty Methyl Ester Sulfonate (FMES) Market Challenges Development Trends & Competitive Analysis by 2023 Fatty Methyl Ester Sulfonate (FMES) is an anionic surfactant obtained from palm oil. It is derived by the esterification of fatty acid present in palm oil, followed by sulfonation. Methyl ester of palm oil fatty acid is sulfonated by sulfur trioxide to produce FMES. The number of carbon atoms present in the fatty acid varies from 12 to 18. The property of FMES to act as a potential surfactant depends on the carbon chain length. FMES with 16 carbon chain length shows the highest level of performance, followed by 18 and 12 carbon chain lengths. Planning to lay down strategy for the next few years?
