Molecular Formula & Molecular Weight

Molecular Formula: N/A

Molecular Weight: N/A


Schematic formula:


Appearance    (1), pale yellow to yellow liquid; (2), solid.

Solubility    soluble in water.

Stability    stable.

Risk    Solid form: flammable material; irritation, irritation to skin, eye, respiratory system. Harmful products of combustion are CO, CO2 and so on. Contact with strong oxidants, can cause to burn.

GHS (Rev.9) label:  

Ecology    may be hazardous to environment. Water body should be given special attention.

Biodegradability    biodegradable.

Characteristics    excellent cleansing, emulsifying, dispersing, solubilizing, foaming, foam stabilizing, wetting abilities. Mild surfactant. Resistance to hard water. Resistance to high concentrations of alkali. Under acidic condition, the performance is not affected. Often used with lauryl glucose. Suitable for "non-sulfate" formula.

Note    (1), Can be used in children cleaning products.
