Hypothesis: In contrast to anionic and nonionic amphiphilic substances, bio-based cationic ones are very rare. Cationic amphiphiles are mostly based on quaternary ammonium, pyridinium or imidazolium groups that are either badly biodegradable or have toxic residues even after degradation. In the search for green alternatives to cationic hydrotropes and amphiphiles, natural L-carnitine could be a ...
