Description

Brown viscous liquid; [Alfa Aesar MSDS]

Sources/Uses

Used in chemical synthesis, in the personal-domestic use industry, and as a detergent (after neutralization); [IUCLID] Used to make linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS) surfactants; [EPA ChAMP: Submission] Used as an active (disinfectant-antimicrobial and wood preservative) and inert (residential and agricultural end-use products) component in pesticide products; [ExPub: EPA - RDD] Used in hydraulic fluids, lubricants-greases, and metalworking fluids; [ExPub: ECHA REACH Registrations]
