Sodium Lauryl Sulphate Production Cost Analysis 2020
Sodium lauryl sulphate, better known as sodium dodecyl sulphate or SDS, is an example of a synthetic organic compound. It is an anionic surfactant that is used in several cleaning and hygiene products. This molecule is a type of organosulphur, as well as salt. It is composed of a 12-carbon tail attached to a sulphate group, that is, the sodium salt of dodecyl hydrogen sulphate, the ester of dodecyl alcohol, and sulphuric acid. Its hydrocarbon tail joined with a polar headgroup gives the compound amphiphilic properties to make it useful as a detergent. Being extracted from a component of mixtures manufactured from inexpensive coconut and palm oils, sodium lauryl sulphate is a common component of several domestic cleaning, personal hygiene and cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and food products, as well as of commercial cleaning and product formulations.
Sodium lauryl sulphate is synthesised by treating lauryl alcohol and sulphur trioxide gas, oleum, or chlorosulphuric in order to make hydrogen lauryl sulfate. The end product is then neutralised through the addition of sodium hydroxide or sodium carbonate. Lauryl alcohol can be used in pure form as well as be derived from either coconut or palm kernel oil through hydrolysis.
