What is Sodium dodecyl sulfate

Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS or NaDS) (C12H25SO4Na), sodium laurilsulfate or Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), is an anionic surfactant acclimated in abounding charwoman and hygiene products. Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) is an anionic bactericide acclimated to solubilize and alloy proteins in protein abstraction and SDS-PAGE; aswell acclimated in a array of admixture and atomic analysis techniques.SDS is able in both ionic and anionic conditions. SDS unravels proteins by bounden to peptide chains and imparting a abrogating allegation on the protein; this causes the protein to disentangle eliminating appearance as a agency for gel separation.The atom has a appendage of 12 carbon atoms, absorbed to a sulfate group, giving the atom the amphiphilic backdrop appropriate of a detergent.
