Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate Production Cost Analysis 2021

Ammonium lauryl sulphate or ALS is a commonly used name for ammonium dodecyl sulphate. It is grouped as an alkyl sulphate and is also an anionic surfactant widely found in  and body wash as a foaming agent. ALS has a pH slightly less than seven, making it mildly acidic.

Ammonium lauryl sulphate is made up of a long nonpolar hydrocarbon chain with a polar sulphate end group. The combination makes the material a surfactant. These two components permit this chemical compound to be soluble in both polar and nonpolar molecules. 

Ammonium lauryl sulphate is a very high-foam surfactant that disrupts the surface tension of water in part by forming micelles around the highly polar water molecules at the surface-air interface. Just like many surfactants, it creates an excellent base for cleaners due to the way it disrupts hydrogen bonding in water. In aqueous solutions, lauryl sulphate anions and ammonium cations dissociate from each other.
