Recently I was looking for information on
a phosphoric ester based on an ethoxilated lauryl (=C12) alcohol
This is the chemical & the formula is correct;
the CAS Nr I gave previously was for
phosphoric acid, dodecyl ester
CAS Nr 12751-23-4
NOT the same chemical
If tri(laureth-4)-phosphate has no CAS Nr would that mean it is unregulated
or not approved for use?
If your company is not the manufacturer, do you know who is?*
In 1989 CECA Company manufactured inipol EAP 22 & used this ingredient
plus 2-butoxyethanol* CAS Nr 111-76-2
C6H14O2/CH3(CH2)2CH2OCH2CH2OH 10-12% of product by weight
plus Oleic acid - primary ingredient CH3(CH2)7CH=CH(CH2)7COOH
(Today's CAS Nr = 112-80-1 ...does it match?)
plus Urea NH2-CO-NH2 (Today's CAS Nr = 57-13-6...does it match?)
Is it possible to have the help of an expert chemist and a toxicologist
to know the effect on workers?
... when not heated?
.... when heated to 100 degrees C or 194 degrees F?
(MSDS Didn't say anything about heating; later reports do)
How would the above listed ingredients react with each other?
The tri(laureth-4) phosphate, you say is not a stand-alone chemical... so possibly it will have reacted with 2-butoxyethanol? There is such a chemical as Tributoxyethylphosphate (TBEP) The fact that today's inipol EAP 22 uses a simplistic instead of complex phosphate, could be an indication of problems... overkill, mind you, that may have put workers at even greater risk than first thought.
Do you have a recommendation?

PS Exxon cautioned that product could be absorbed through skin; *
not to breathe vapors...
keep product out of sewers and watercourses
by diking or impounding
& keep out of extensive land areas.
Inipol EAP 22 is said to be 100% soluble in water at 77 degrees F
(Maybe so; maybe not?)
Doesn't sound like inipol EAP 22 should be used,
