Linear alkyl benzene sulfonic acid, also known as LABSA, is an anionic surfactant with molecules belonging to a hydrophilic and a hydrophobic group. LABSA is widely used as an industrial detergent. This product is used in washing powder, detergent powder, oil soap, and cleaning powder.
ArChem provides LABSA and other raw chemical materials such as Ammonium Nitrate, Soda Ash, and Ammonium Chloride for various industrial applications. Additionally, ArChem provides customers with other chemical products including Nitrocellulose, Nitrocellulose solution, organic solvents, etc. for further information please contact our technical sales team in ArChem.
LABSA is a sticky, viscous brown liquid. It is a synthetic chemical surfactant, which is synthesized through the sulfonation process. LABSA is soluble in water, alcohols, glycols, glycol ethers, esters, ketones, aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons.
Linear alkyl benzene sulfonic acid (LABSA), has different chemical and physical properties based on the length of the alkyl chain. So, it has a variety of formulations and many applications. It is mostly used in household detergents. Plus, this product is used in numerous industrial applications as an emulsifier and as a wetting agent.
Archem LABSA, also known as Dodecylbenzene Sulfonic Acid, LAS, n-Dodecylbenzene Sulfonic Acid, and Alkylbenzene sulfonate, is used in the detergent industry for manufacturing washing powder, detergent powder, liquid soap, oil soap, and other cleaning powders. Chemical and physical properties of ArChem LABSA are:
|IUPAC name||Dodecylbenzene Sulfonic Acid|
|Molecular weight||326.494 g/mol|
|Boiling Point||82 °C|
|Melting Point||10 °C|
ArChem LABSA due to its low cost and high performance is used in different industries. Plus, LABSA can be dried to a stable powder form. Some uses of ArChem LABSA include:
ArChem LABSA is synthesized through the sulfonation process. Sulfonation reagents include sulfuric acid, chlorosulfonic acid, sulfamic acid and diluted sulfur trioxide.
Since the sulfonic acids are frequently used in the form of their sodium salts, sulfonation is usually followed by neutralization with sodium hydroxide or sodium carbonate.
