                        Short for surface-active agent, surfactants are used to describe a chemical that will reduce the surface tension of water when it is added to it. This enables the water to mix with materials it would otherwise not dissolve, such as grease. There are three categories: detergents, wetting agents, and emulsifiers; all use the same basic chemical mechanism and differ in the nature of the surfaces involved.
