Sorbitol and sucrose in soap applying IC amperometric detection

Polyols and sugars in soaps enhance the stability and the size of air bubbles and foam. In addition to the polyol glycerin, sugar alcohols and sugars are often added to soaps. The determination of sorbitol and saccharose in a transparent soap takes place on a column of the Metrosep Carb 2 - 150/4.0 type with subsequent pulsed amperometric detection (PAD).
