Synthesis
Currently, sulfonation reaction through continuous reactor (such as: falling film reactor) is the most widely used method for preparing sulfonates.
Generally, hexyldiphenyl ether and fuming sulfuric acid or sulfur trioxide react through reactor, then sodium hydroxide or sodium carbonate neutralizes, finally obtain product.
Refer to: US patent 8,921,588 Process for preparing sulfates and/or sulfonates in a micro-reaction system.
