Molecular Formula & Molecular Weight

Molecular Formula: N/A

Molecular Weight: N/A


R: tallow alkyl.


Appearance    (1), solid; (2), paste; (3), liquid.

Solubility    soluble in water. Solubility increases with the increase of EO number.

Stability    stable. Easily oxidized.

Risk    Solid form: flammable material; irritation, irritation to skin, eye, respiratory system. Harmful products of combustion are CO, CO2 and so on. Contact with strong oxidants, can cause to burn.

GHS (Rev.10) label:  

Ecology    may be hazardous to environment. Water body should be given special attention.

Biodegradability    biodegradable.

Characteristics    excellent emulsifying, dispersing, antistatic, solubilizing, lubricating, anticorrosive abilities. Performance is related to EO number. Low EO: poor resistant to alkali.

Note    (1), The by-product 1,4-dioxane is a possible carcinogen. Generally, can be acceptable when concentration of 1,4-dioxane is less than 30ppm or less.
