Linear Alkyl Benzene Production Cost Report

Linear Alkyl Benzene (C6H5CnH2n + 1) is a family of organic compounds. Usually, n lies within 10 and 16, even though typically supplied as a tighter cut like C12-C15, C12-C13 and C10-C13 for detergent application. The CnH2n+1 chain is unbranched. They are primarily made as an intermediate for surfactant production and have emerged as the dominant precursor of biodegradable detergents.

Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) comprises two groups, Alkyl and Benzene, which is also known as detergent alkyl. It has a molar mass of 239-243 gr/mol and a density of 0.0008 g/cm3. It appears to be a yellowish liquid. It is not soluble in water. It has a flash point of 140 ° C igniting in a sealed container.

LAB (linear alkyl benzene) is the primary feedstock used to produce LABSA (Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulphonate), which is the leading powder and liquid laundry detergent in the world. It is used as a speciality solvent and an ingredient in a few heat transfer fluids. It is also used to produce Linear Alkylbenzene Sulphonate (LAS), which finds application as a surfactant for making detergents and cleaners.

It is employed across several industries including in the production of powder detergents; liquid detergents like dishwashing liquid, glass cleaners and household scavengers; agricultural herbicides emulsion polymerization; as an emulsifier; as an emollient and moisturizing agent; to produce oily power cables and ink and paint solvents which boosts its market demand. Also, it finds use in the nuclear industry as a neutrino detector which in turn propels the market expansion.
