Sorbitan monolaurate CAS 1338-39-2

Sorbitan monolaurate is an organic compound that is miscible with organic solvents and oils
Sorbitan monolaurate Properties
Overview of Sorbitan Monolaurate
Span 20 is a sorbitan dodecanoate, an amber oily liquid. The sorbitan monolaurate can be miscible with organic solvents and oils to form a semi lotion solution in water. Using sorbitol as the raw material, sorbitol is formed through dehydration closed-loop, and then esterified with lauric acid to prepare it.

Performance of Sorbitan Monolaurate
Amber viscous liquid or beige to brownish yellow waxy solid with a slight special odor. When the temperature is above the melting point, it is soluble in chemical books such as methanol, ethanol, toluene, ether, ethyl acetate, aniline, petroleum ether, and carbon tetrachloride. It is insoluble in cold water, but can be dispersed in hot water. The HLB value is 8.6. Rat LD5010g/kg, Adl0-25mg/kg (FAO/WHO, 1994).
