Information @ a Glance


  • Linear alkylbenzene sulfonic acid is the largest-volume synthetic surfactant because of its relatively low cost, good performance, the fact that it can be dried to a stable powder and the biodegradable environmental friendliness as it has straight chain.
  • LAS is an anionic surfactants with molecules characterized by a hydrophobic and a hydrophilic group.

Manufacturing Process

  • The raw materials required to produce acid slurries are linear alkyl benzene, oleum, Sulphuric Acid and sulfonating agent.
  • Acid slurry or alkyl benzene sulphonate is prepared by sulphonation of Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) with a suitable sulphonating agent.
  • LAS is manufactured from linear alkylbenzene (LAB) in self-contained, enclosed systems. LAB is produced by reacting paraffins with benzene and a catalyst and isolating the LAB by distillation. The LAB is then sulfonated,
    which in turn is then neutralized to sodium salts of LAS.


  • Synthetic detergents, being a mass consumption item have shown a dramatic growth since its inception in 1957. Presently, detergents are available to the consumers in the form of powders and cakes/bars. Bulk of the production of these items is done in the small scale sector.


  • It is Used as main active detergent in all forms of detergents like cake, powder and liquid formulation.,  As an emulsifier and wetting agent.,  In small quantity with other surfactant in toilet soap for foaming.
  • Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulphonic Acid (LABSA) - Soft Acid Slurry is main Raw Material for Synthetic Detergent industries in the formulation of Washing Powder, Detergent Powder, Detergent Cake, Liquid Soap, Cleaning Powder, Scouring Bar, Oil Soaps etc.
