Would be grateful if someone could help with this. I have an emulsifier/surfactant made from the polymerization between Polymerized glycerol/Polymerized glycerine and Polymerized Ricinoleic Acid (Castor oil derivative). This emulsifier has a water content of less than 1%.
How can I concentrate this emulsifier? If I simply distil, I would only remove a small portion of the already minimal water.
Would polymerizing both the Glycerine and the Ricinoleic give me a more concentrated product? Or can I use a distillation method that distils the more active part of the emulsifier? Could any polymerization experts come up with a solution?
I hope I am making sense.
