When used in lower concentrations, it inhibits corrosion and adds crispness to detergent granules [37]. Figure 14: structure of a sodium silicate compound [41] Appendix Carbon bonds: Each vertex in a chromophore molecule represents one carbon atom. A single bond of carbon is represented by a single line. A double bond of carbon is represented by a double line. In a chromophore molecule, the straight carbon chain alternates in single and double bonded carbons. Redox reactions: A type of chemical reaction that involves the transfer of electrons between two components involves both an oxidation and a reduction reaction. A molecule, atom, or ion will either gain or lose electron(s). Electron: Atoms have subatomic particle(s) with a negative charge. Nonpolar: an equal sharing of electrons between the atoms so they are not charged. Polar: an unequal sharing of electrons causing a difference in positive and negative charge on the atoms. Emulsion: A suspension of tiny droplets of one liquid in a second liquid. Desorb: the release or removal of an adsorbed substance by the reverse of absorption

pH scale: it means potential hydrogen and is a relative measure of how acidic or basic a substance is. Eutrophication: Eutrophication is the enrichment of an ecosystem with chemical nutrients, typically compounds containing nitrogen, phosphorus, or both. Eutrophication is a type of pollution that stimulates an explosive growth of algae (algal blooms) that depletes the water of oxygen when the algae die and are eaten by bacteria. Eutrophication is a leading cause of impairment of many freshwater and coastal marine ecosystems in the world. References [1] Benckiser, R.
