Molecular Formula & Molecular Weight
Molecular Formula: N/A
Molecular Weight: N/A
Schematic formula:
Appearance    (1), powder.
Solubility    soluble in water.
Stability    unstable in alkali, releases ammonia.
Risk    Solid form: flammable material; irritation, moderate irritation to skin, eye, respiratory. Harmful products of combustion are CO, CO2 and so on. Contact with strong oxidants, can cause to burn.
GHS (Rev.6) label:  
Ecology    may be hazardous to environment. Water body should be given special attention.
Biodegradability    to a certain extent, biodegradable.
Characteristics    excellent dispersing, emulsifying, wetting abilities. Certain resistance to inorganic electrolytes.
Naphthalenesulfonic acid and formaldehyde react through the polycondensation reaction, then ammonia water neutralizes, finally obtain product.
