Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

The visual description of the colour and the physical state (at 20°C and 1013 hPa) result in the following: the test substance ‘Benzenesulfonic acid, di-C10-14-alkyl derivs., calcium salts’ (that is from organic origin) is a viscous, brown coloured (clear) liquid.

It should be noted that the substance is produced, supplied and marketed in the presence of a liquid mineral oil solvent. Removal of this solvent is expected to cause a change in the equilibrium of the chemical structure of the alkylated benzene sulfonates resulting in a degradation of the chemical structure to a structure that is not representative of the substance being placed on the market in the EU. Finally, the presence of the mineral oil solvent changes the physical state of the substance ‘Benzenesulfonic acid, di-C10-14-alkyl derivatives, calcium salts’ from solid to liquid.
