Abstract:

The invention provides a process for the prepn. of long-chain alkyl glycosides, comprising reacting a glucose-contg. reactant and a C8-C18 fatty alc. in the presence of a glucosidase and a reaction promoter effective to promote the formation of the alkyl glycoside when the promoter is present in an amt. of <∼50% of the total reaction mixt.
