About Linear Alkyl Benzene:

Linear Alkyl Benzenes, or often called the LABs, are basically a family of organic compounds. They are primarily prepared as intermediates in the manufacturing of surfactants for use in detergents. They are also used as a neutrino detector in the nuclear industry. Linear Alkyl Benzene can be sulphonated to produce LAS, a biodegradable surfactant. It can be produced using different routes based on the requirement of LAB-derived detergents. 

Chemical Formula:

  • C6H5CnH2n+1

Synonym:

  • LAB     
  • 67774-74-7
  • (C10-13 alkyl) benzene  

Industrial Uses:

  • Surfactant
  • Household Detergents
  • Industrial Cleaners
  • Laundry Powders
  • Light-Duty-Dish-Washing Liquids

Production Processes

  • Production of Linear Alkyl Benzene from Ethylene; and from Kerosene

Ethylene can be oligomerized or partially polymerized in order to obtain linear alkenes. The resulting linear mono-olefins are made to react with benzene with the help of a catalyst, particularly hydrogen fluoride (HF) and aluminium chloride (AlCl3), to produce Linear Alkyl Benzene.
