Summary of Some Important Parameters Reported for RHAMNOLIPID Biosurfactant

The surface tension (ST) of rhamnolipid solution ranges from 25 mN/m to 40 mN/m.  This is approximately two to three times lower than the surface tension of water (72 mN/m).  These values depend on the composition of the rhamnolipid solution, the ratio of di- to mono-rhamnolipids, the purity of the rhamnolipids, the concentration of the rhamnolipid solution, and the co-dissolved solutes in the rhamnolipid solution (e.g.: glucose, glycerol, mannitol, sucrose, maltose, lactose, galactose, rhamnose, raffinose, sorbitol, etc.).

The critical micelle concentration (CMC) of rhamnolipid solution ranges from 15-380 mg/liter.  These values also depend on the composition of the rhamnolipids, the ratio of di- to mono- rhamnolipids, the purity of the rhamnolipids, the concentration of the rhamnolipid solution, etc.  The critical micelle concentration (CMC) of rhamnolipid solution is approximately 100 times lower than that of the chemical surfactant sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS).

The interfacial tension (IFT) of rhamnolipid solution against crude oil / diesel / kerosene / naphthalene / n-pentane / n-heptane / n-hexadecane / motor oil, etc., ranges from 10‾² to ultra-low 10⁵ mN/m.  Again, these values depend on the composition of the rhamnolipid solution and the formulation of rhamnolipids with the composition and species of the chemical surfactants.

Rhamnolipids can tolerate a broad spectrum of pH (e.g. ranging from pH 3-10).

Rhamnolipids can tolerate high salt conditions (e.g. 20% NaCl).

Rhamnolipids can tolerate high temperatures (e.g. extended periods of 90°C).

Rhamnolipids have excellent emulsifying activity and stability (e.g. E24 ranges from 10 to 90%).  These values depend on the composition of the mixed solution (e.g.: n-hexadecane, liquid paraffin, petroleum, diesel, kerosene, mineral oil, toluene, etc.) as well as pH.

Rhamnolipids are compatible with the environment, readily biodegradable in soil and water, safe, non-toxic or harmless to humans, animals, aquatic organisms, insects, and microbial flora, if handled correctly and applied properly.
