LABSA is an anionic surfactant, whose molecules are characterized by a hydrophilic and a hydrophobic group. This nonvolatile
chemical compound is synthesized through the process of sulfonation. The sulfonation reagents include sulfuric acid,
chlorosulfonic acid, sulfamic acid and diluted sulfur trioxide.
Linear alkylbenzene sulfonic acid (LABSA) is prepared commercially by sulfonating linear alkylbenzene (LAB). Linear alkylbenzene
sulfonate (LAS), the world's largest-volume synthetic surfactant, which includes the various salts of sulfonated alkylbenzenes, is
widely used in household detergents as well as in numerous industrial applications.
LABSA is widely used in a variety of detergents and emulsifiers, such as washing powder, daily-use chemical detergent, utensils
detergents and textile industry of the cleaning agent, dye, electroplating industry, leather industry, degreasing agents and paper
industry's de-coloring agent. Household detergents including laundry powders, laundry liquids, dishwashing liquids and other
