I have a collegue who is trying to make up Octyl-D-Glucoside in water at
20mM (or 40mM) which around the CMC. While this detergent is supposed to
be soluble to 20 %, his solutions appear immicible - he just gets phase
seperation or an opaque emulsion.
The stock he is using is 'Practical Grade' from ICN and is a yellow
liquid ... others have noted that Octyl-D-Glucoside comes as a
crystaline powder ...
Anyone have any experience with this (or similar) detergents ? How do
you get them to go into solution ?
