Cissuspopulnea plant shows higher surface tension and sorption behaviour property as well as foam formation/capacity far better especially leaves and roots than some commercial/synthetic surfactants (OMO) that were used in the study. This saponin- based surfactant is significantly be as an eco-friendly and may show better biodegradability than the commercial surfactants. The natural surfactant from Cissuspopulnea plants leave and roots will contribute to efforts in diversify the Nigerians economy, a way to solve the problem of non-biodegradable, high price and non-eco-friendly phenomenon that exists in the production of commercial/synthetic surfactant and add value to green chemistry and sustainable development and exploitation of the cleansing properties of saponin present in Cissuspopulnea plants.
