Examples of applications
Linear alkylbenzene (LAB) is a basic raw material for the production of linear alkylbenzene sulphonic acid (LAS). After neutralization it is the most common active ingredient in detergents because of its biodegrability. Sulphonation of linear alkylbenzene (LAB) leads to formation of the relevant sulphonic acid (LABSA). The neutralized LABSA is the most versatile tensioactive and the one most amply used in all kinds of detergent formulations like powder, liquid, gel, admixtures, bars and tablets.
