Microbial surfactants are amphiphilic compounds. The unique properties of biosurfactant allow their use and possible replacement of chemically synthesized surfactant. The composite soil samples from different oil mills were screened for the presence of Pseudomonas species. The four confirmed strain of Pseudomonas show positive results and were further studied for the presence of surfactant production ability using five different medium. The result of surfactant production was expressed in terms of Rhamnose.

Keywords: Biosurfactant, Rhamnolipid, Pseudomonas aeruginosa,Raw materials.
