Hydronium and hydroxide
Nonpolar nitrogen chain and carboxylic acid
Hydroxide and carboxylic acid
Nonpolar carbon chain and salt of carboxylic acid
Soaps have long hydrocarbon chains and detergents have long nitrogen chains.
Detergents have long hydrocarbon chains and soaps have long nitrogen chains.
Soaps contain salts and detergents contain sulfonic or phosphoric acid groups.
Detergents contain carboxylic acid groups and soaps contain phosphoric acid groups.
Phosphates cause a detergent to produce scum in hard water.
Detergents with phosphates cannot clean as thoroughly as those without them do.
Phosphates are corrosive.
Phosphates can cause overgrowth of algae in waterways.
