1.1 These test methods cover the various test methods that are applicable to alkylbenzene in order to evaluate those properties pertinent to the characterization of the alkylbenzene with respect to its suitability for desired uses. Note1—Detergent alkylate comprises alkylbenzenes prepared by varying processes, of varying alkyl chain configuration and length. The alkylate is sulfonated for surfactant use, the largest application being in detergent products. Careful control of detergent alkylate characteristics is desired, for along with sulfonation procedure, variations of the sulfonate can ensue that may result in either desirable or undesirable end-use properties.
1.2This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
