What is Lauryl Alcohol?

Lauryl alcohol is an oily fluid or strong with a pungent smell, combustible as well as low toxicity. Insoluble in water, soluble in natural solvents such as ethanol and also ether. When reacting with focused sulfuric acid, an esterification reaction will certainly occur, and also the product is dodecyl sulfate (dodecyl sulfate). The typical surfactant salt dodecyl sulfate (SDS) can be acquired by introducing salt. It is frequently utilized in the production of cleansing products such as tooth paste and soap. Nonetheless, if it connects with alkaline compounds, there will be no response in all.

Lauryl Alcohol Uses

1. Lauryl Alcohol is utilized in the manufacture of high-efficiency cleaning agents, surfactants (sodium fatty alcohol ether sulfate, K12, AEO, etc), frothing representatives, emulsifiers, milk selection representatives, fabric oils, bactericides, cosmetics, plasticizers, plant growth regulatory authorities, lubricating substance ingredients and some other specialty chemicals.

2. Extensively utilized in light sector, chemical market, metallurgy, medication and other commercial items.

3. Lauryl Alcohol has the fragrance of moonflower and violet, and also can be utilized in rose, violet as well as lily narcissus significances.

4. It has secure chemical as well as physical buildings as well as is risk-free to make use of in soap fragrance.

5. Oxidation or dehydrogenation can generate n-dodecaldehyde.

6. Lauryl Alcohol is additionally made use of as a basic material for cosmetics, scents, fabric auxiliaries, chemical fiber oils, emulsifiers as well as flotation agents.

7. Some surfactants of dodecanoic acid and dodecanol derivatives are likewise disinfectants.

Production Method of Lauryl Alcohol

1. High-pressure hydrogenation: Coconut oil is continually hydrogenated in a copper-chromium stimulant to get C8-C18 blended alcohol. Glycerin in oil is hydrogenolyzed to isopropanol and water. After the combined fatty alcohols are often pressure evaporated to remove the water and also isopropyl alcohol, C8-C10 alcohols, C12-C14 alcohols and also C16-C18 alcohols are distilled under minimized pressure.

2. Esterification as well as hydrogenation technique: Coconut oil undertakes transesterification response with methanol in the existence of sulfuric acid to generate methyl laurate and glycerin, which is hydrogenated as well as distilled to get lauryl alcohol.

Preparation of Lauryl Alcohol

Report 1.
Step 1, hydrogenation of fatty acid ester: mix 1.6 g carbon dodecanoic acid methyl ester with 26.8 NL hydrogen (the molar ratio of hydrogen to fatty acid ester is 150:1), include 2.0 g copper-zinc driver to the reaction system, At a temperature level of 280 ° C as well as a stress of 5MPa, the fatty acid ester hydrogenation reaction is accomplished under pressure;

Step 2, fatty alcohol splitting up: separate the product obtained in step 1 to acquire unreacted hydrogen, unreacted fat ester and also fatty alcohol, and also include unreacted fatty acid ester to the fat ester symphonious 1 In the hydrogenation reaction system, most of the unreacted hydrogen is circularly contributed to the fat ester hydrogenation reaction system in step 1, as well as a little part of the unreacted hydrogen is introduced into the fatty alcohol dehydration system in step 3.

Record 2.
Include 5g of lauric acid, 5g of methanol, 1.5 g of Cu-Al2O3 and also 50mL of deionized water right into a 100mL periodic high-temperature as well as high-pressure reactor, begin mixing, raise the temperature to 330 ° C for 3 hrs, after the response, cool to room temperature, as well as allow the fluid stage product stand After layering, the organic phase acquired by separation was fixed to volume with acetone and quantitatively analyzed by GC-FID. The calculated conversion price of lauric acid was 100%, as well as the molar return of Lauryl Alcohol was 99.1%.
