ABSTRACT
The article reports on the discovery of a surfactant called alkyl amidine by researchers from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario which has the ability to mix and separate oil and water. It is said that the separating ability of the surfactant are significant in several processes such as cleaning of oil spills and degreasing metal equipment. Lead researcher Philip Jessop hopes that the alkyl amidine can be used to enhanced oil recovery and for extraction of oil from oil sands.
