Linear Alkyl Benzene
Linear alkyl benzene is a chemical compound. The molar mass of the oily liquid is colorless.
Since 1960, the use of this substance in detergents has been stopped due to environmental problems. Kerosene or cranberries are the primary raw paraffin of high purity, which ultimately converts to linear olefins with dehydrogenation. Consequently, linear mono-olefins react with benzene in the presence of a catalyst and produce linear alkyl benzene. Linear alkyl benzene is used to produce alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS). This detergent is a biodegradable liveable. Linear alkyl benzene is referred to as a compound, which includes a benzene ring and a linear alkyl group attached to it. Linear alkyl benzene is in the group of aromatic hydrocarbons.
- The most important use of alkylbenzene is the manufacture of detergents. Linear alkyl benzene is a flammable and non-toxic substance.
