Application

Saponins are nonionic surfactant that forms oil-in-water emulsions and acts as protective colloid. They are used for the direct determination of metals in milk by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry. Saponins are also used in permeabilization of cell membranes and separation of low molecular weight contaminants, and as an adjuvant in vaccine development.
