About LABSA (96%)

Linear alkyl benzene sulfonic acid

Linear alkyl benzene sulfonic acid is the largest-volume synthetic surfactant because of its relatively low cost, good performance, the fact that it can be dried to a stable powder, biodegradable and environment friendly.

LABSA is an anionic surfactants with molecules characterized by a hydrophobic and a hydrophilic group. Alpha-olefin sulfonates (AOS) alkyl sulfates (AS) are also examples of commercial anionic surfactants. They are nonvolatile compounds produced by sulfonation. LABSA are complex mixtures of homologues of different alkyl chain lengths (C10 to C13 or C14) and phenyl positional isomers of 2 to 5-phenyl in proportions dictated by the starting materials and reaction conditions, each containing an aromatic ring sulfonated at the para position and attached to a linear alkyl chain at any position with the exception of terminal one (1-phenyl).

The properties of LABSA differ in physical and chemical properties according to the alkyl chain length, resulting in formulations for various applications. The starting material LAB (linear alkylbenzene) is produced by the alkylation of benzene with n-paraffins. In the presence of aluminium chloride (AlCl3) as a catalyst. LABSA is produced by the sulfonation of LAB with SO3 in multi-tube falling film reactor.


Quality management systems and constant inspection procedures are conducted at UCF to ensure each batch of Sulfonation products are in accordance to international and safety standards.
