Risk    Liquid form: irritation, moderate 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 personal care products.
(2), Do not use in nitrosating environment. Reaction of diethanolamine and nitrous acid can produce nitrosamines. Nitrosamine is a carcinogen.
Currently, sulfated reaction through continuous reactor (such as: falling film reactor) is the most widely used method for preparing sulfates.
Generally, lauryl alcohol and sulfur trioxide react through reactor, then diethanolamine 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.
