Cas No.375-84-8 is an important ingredient in the chemical industry commonly known as Sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate (SDBS). It is a highly active surfactant and is used in a variety of industrial products.
In detergents, it is one of the three main ingredients, serving to decrease the surface tension of water to allow better spread and increased wetting, cleaning, foaming and emulsifying. It also adds lubricity, softening and antistatic properties.
In cosmetics and toiletries, Sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate is often used as the primary surfactant or together with other surfactants to form synergistic blends. It helps to form a mild and gentle basis with low irritation. Sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate also acts as an anti-static agent in hair conditioners and styling aides.
In industrial cleaning and degreasing, Sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate has excellent solubilizing and washing properties, enabling effective cleaning of various surfaces including oil and grease.
In regard to textile industry, Sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate usually works as wetting and dispersing agent, softening agent and anti-yellowing agent.
In oil extraction and recirculation, Sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate helps to improve the process by providing wetting and emulsifying effects which allows the extraction and separation of oil from water or other substances.
Additionally, it serves applications such as window and surface cleaning and degreasing, surface finishing, metals treatment and leather tanning.
Generally, Cas No.375-84-8 has high purity, excellent performance and occupies a prominent place in several industries, especially the chemical and oil industry. With the molecular weight of 394.58 g/mol, Sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate generates an anionic charge. It is available in different forms, for example liquid and powder.
