Objective of the present research was to study some dispersing agents for carbon black pigment in an aqueous based inkjet ink. The experiment tested on 6 different surfactants which were alcohol ethoxylate, ethylenediamine ethyleneoxide propyleneoxide blockcopolymer, polypropylene glycol blockcopolyme, sodium dodecyl sulphate, sodium polycarboxylate and polymerized naphthalene sulfonate having CMC in a range of 0.01 to 1 %wt studied by measuring surface tension and conductivity of their solution. The black pigment sediment was observed by leaving on a shelf for 30 days. The amorphous particle of the carbon black pigment had a size average in a range of 0.14-0.24 μm dispersed in the inks. The pigmented inks prepared from polymeric dispersants: alcohol ethoxylate and polymerized naphthalene sulfonate gave a high optical density. The pigmented inks which had a small and narrow size distribution gave good inkjet printing runability comparatively.
