Structure
Properties
Appearance    (1), liquid.
Solubility    soluble in water.
Stability    stable.
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, dispersing, solubilizing abilities.
Note    (1), Do not use in personal care products.
(2), Do not use in nitrosating environment. Reaction of monoethanolamine and nitrous acid can not produce nitrosamines, however, reaction of contained secondary amine of monoethanolamine and nitrous acid can produce nitrosamines. Nitrosamine is a carcinogen.
Synthesis
Currently, sulfonation reaction through continuous reactor (such as: falling film reactor) is the most widely used method for preparing sulfonates.
Generally, dodecylbenzene and sulfur trioxide react through reactor, then monoethanolamine 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 alkyl benzenes or other raw materials: 1:1; temperature: 30-60°C; reactor: falling film reactor.
