Lower the surface tension of Ethanol

  1. For my research I am looking for a surfactant that can effectively lower surface tension of pure ethanol. The literature value of surface tension for ethanol is about 22 mN/m. I am looking for something that can achieve lower than 20 mN/m at room temperature.

    Maximum concentration of the chemical I would use is 10%.

    Does anyone know of any chemical that can do this?
