The present paper highlights:

Synthesis of copper surfactants derived from edible oils i.e. Groundnut & Sesame and non-edible oils i.e. Neem & Karanj.


Spectral studies (IR, NMR) have been carried out to understand the structural insight of the surfactants synthesized.

Results and Conclusion:

Thermogravimetric analysis of copper surfactants derived from Groundnut, Sesame, Neem & Karanj has been done to confirm the thermal decomposition/stability. Kinetic parameter i.e. activation energy and thermodynamic parameters i.e. Gibbs free energy, entropy and enthalpy were calculated by five different well-known equations namely Freeman Carroll, Coats - Redfern, Horowitz – Metzger, Broido, and Piloyan –Novikova.

Keywords: Copper surfactants, IR, NMR, ESR, TGA, Gibbs free energy.

I am completely satisfied with the service I received from Bentham Science Publishers, right from the submission of our research paper in ‘Open Chemistry’ to its publication in the journal. The reviewers' and editor's comments were very helpful in improving the paper.

I take this opportunity to express my appreciation to the whole team of BSP!
