Zwittergent 3-12; SB3-12; Lauryl sultaine; 3-(N,NDimethyldodecylammonio)propanesulfonate; N-DodecylN,N-Dimethyl-3-Ammonio-1-Propane Sulfate
Sulfobetaine-12 is a zwitterionic detergent that retains its zwitterionic character over a broad pH range.
This property is attributed to the presence of a strongly basic quaternary ammonium ion and an acidic sulfonate ion of equal strength. This ionic balance presumably prevents irreversible binding to either anionic or cationic compound.
