Enviromental Considerations[edit]

It is one thing to say that biodegradability has been well studied. More important is the ecotoxicological studies, none of which are referenced here and which depicts a much nastier image of LAS. http://aem.asm.org/content/67/6/2489.short http://scholar.google.fi/scholar?hl=en&as_sdt=0,5&q=LAS+ecotoxicology will have to get back here to edit this uuuǝıɹ 15:38, 9 April 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Riennn (talkcontribs)

LAS vs SDBS[edit]

The first line of the page implies that linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS) is a "synonym" for sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate (SDBS). This hint seems to be falsified by the first section of the page, where it is specified that only some SDBSs are LASs (some sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonates can be branched). Moreover, for what I understood (unfortunately, I'm not a chemist), only some LABs are SDBSs. If I'm correct, this should be better covered in the article. Esponenziale (talk) 18:42, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
