Structure
Properties
Appearance    (1), liquid; (2), solid.
Solubility    soluble in water.
Stability    stable in alkali, weak acid and hard water; unstable in strong acid, hydrolyzed, reduced to alcohol.
Risk    Liquid form: irritation, irritation to skin, eye.
GHS (Rev.6) label:
Ecology    may be hazardous to environment. Water body should be given special attention.
Biodegradability    biodegradable.
Characteristics    excellent cleansing, foaming, emulsifying, wetting, permeating, dispersing, solubilizing abilities. Resistant to hard water.
Note    (1), Do not use in children products that can be direct prolonged contact with the skin, such as: skin care products.
(2), Avoid using in children cleaning products, such as: shampoos.
(3), Do not use in nitrosating environment. Reaction of triisopropanolamine and nitrous acid can not produce nitrosamines, however, reaction of contained secondary amine of triisopropanolamine and nitrous acid can produce nitrosamines. Nitrosamine is a carcinogen.
Synthesis
Currently, sulfated reaction through continuous reactor (such as: falling film reactor) is the most widely used method for preparing sulfates.
Generally, dodecyl alcohol and sulfur trioxide react through reactor, then triisopropanolamine neutralizes, finally obtain product.
US patent 8,921,588 (Process for preparing sulfates and/or sulfonates in a micro-reaction system) presents a synthetic process. Conditions: mole ratio of sulfur trioxide and alcohols or other raw materials: 1:1; temperature: 30-60°C; reactor: falling film reactor.
