Patented Sept. 30, 1952 UNITED STATES PATENT orFicE STABILIZED DIAZONIUM SALTS AND PROCESS or EFFECTING SAME William H. von Glahn, Loudonville, and Herman A. Bergstrom, Albany, N. Y., assignors to General Aniline & Film Corporation, New York, N. Y., a corporation of Delaware 1 No Drawing. Application October 22, 1948,

Serial No. 56,047 Claims. c1.260 -141) 1 tin chloride, cadmium chloride, manganese chloride, sodium fluoroborate, aromatic and aliphatic sulfonic acids, sulfates and chlorides. These are known in the trade as Fast Color Salts (see Saunders, The Aromatic Diazo Compounds, p. 29, London 1936), and the complex-forming salts and acids combinedtherein with the diazo compound are herein referred to as Fast Color Salt stabilizers. In many cases the stabilized diazonium salts thus obtained have fine grain crystals which filter very poorly, due to the particle size,-and result in a large proportion of water in the filter cake. The dried product creates dusting problems during grinding and in subsequent processing steps, such as measuring, pouring' and packaging and use in the dye house. In addition to-the dusting problems arising during theprocessing of these diazonium salts, the fine 4 dust. particles so created are a work hazard in the form of possible skin irritations and other health hazards among the workers.

It has nowbeen found that improved stabilized diazonium compounds may be obtained by first reacting the diazotization product with a surface active agent, thereby effecting a partial stabilization of the diazonium compound with the, surface active agent, and then effecting the remainder of the stabilization with one of the usual Fast Color Salt stabilizers mentioned above. The surface active agents which have been found effective are those of the anionic reactive groupwherein the surface active agent contains an aliphatic hydrophobic group and an aliphatically linked hydrophilic group. Included in this group are surface active alkyl carboxylates, sulfonates, alcohol sulfates and phosphates. More specifically, there are included the following classes of surface active agents:

1. Alkali metal soaps such as sodium oleate,

CH3(CH2)'1CHZCH(CH2)1COONa and sodium stearate CH3 (CH2) uCOONa 2. sulfates of higher fatty acids such as sulfonated castor oil (triglyceride of ricinoleic acid) OSOSNfl CHKCHDsHCHzCH:CH(CHz)1C 0 O CH;

OSOaNa CHs(CH,)5 JHCH,CH:CH(CH|)1C0 0 0H OBOaN8 armcmhtncmomomcmnco0e11, s. Sulfonated higher fatty alcohols such as" the cetyl sulfonic acid and the sodium salt of f dodecyl s-ulfonic acid of USP 1,966,187.

4. Sulfated higher fatty alcohols such asfsqaij um lauryl sulfate C12H25OSO3Na 5. Phosphated higher alcohols such as the product known as W.A.35A.

(C aHu) eNasPaOm not known as Igepon T CnHaaC ONCgH4S OaNB 9. ,Acylaminoalkyl carboxylates such as :4 sodium salt of oleyl sarcosine (3H1 017E380 oncmoooNa 1o. Alkyls-ulfonamidoalkyl sulfonates such as' the product known as Emulphor STU CH3 (CH2) 13-15SO2NHCH2CH2SO3N8.

11. Alkylsulfonamido acetates such a e product known as Emulphor S'I'H i 13. Alkylphenoxyalkyl sulfates such as the sodium sulfuric ester of isooetyl phenyl monoglycolether ooiHio'soiNa The sodium sulfuric ester of dodecyl phenyl monoglycolether CizHz O CgHfOSOsNB butylphenoxy ethanol l4. Amino soaps of fatty acids such as the stearic acid soap of 2-amino-l-butanol The diazonium compounds stabilizedby the surface activeagents and the salts or acids generally ve nployedas stabilizing agents in Fast Color Salts 'F'SuchasmetaIlic chlorides, particularly the mercury, iron, zinc, cadmium, tin, antimony, platinum, gold, copper and arsenic chlorides, naphthalenefiulfonicacids such as naphtha1ene1.5

I disulfonic acid, and fiuoroboric acid are prepared by introducing a solutionsof'the surface active agent into the diazotization solution. The combihed diazo solution and surface active agent solution is then mixed withasolution'eontaining the additional stabilizing agent. The exact order of mixing the reactants is-not' material, although it is preferableto initially mix the diazonium compoundand the' surface active agent. Thus the diazo-,andfsurface active agent can be combined first-and the combined solutions added to a solution of the Fast Color Salt stabilizer (such as 2171012)? the Fast Color 'S'alt; stabilizer can be addedto the mixture'of the'diazo plus the surface active agent; the-diazo and the surface active agent-may be run into the solution of the Fast Color. Salt stabilizer simultaneously;- 'orthe' duced from the same diazonium compounds but stabilized .onlywith the usual or conventional stabilizers. This new crystal growth results in most caseseither in the formation of larger crystals which maybe-different in structure from the crystal structure of the corresponding conventionally stabilized diazonium salts or. in a change of degree of crystal aggregation, usually forming mgr-eater degree :of aggregation. In either case the product can be handled with greater ease and thecsolutionsmoreeiiiciently filtered. It is also characteristic. oft-the diazonium compounds Sta-- I I and the sodium sulfuric acid ester of .tetramethyl- 4 bilized in accordance with this invention that a greater degree of initial dryness is present in the filter cake.

The stabilization of the diazonium salts by means of the surface active agents ,of this-invention thus results in an appreciable reduction of the water content of the filtered diazo cake, as a direct result of the change in crystal pattern or v formation of larger crystals or crystal aggregates.

As compared with ordinary Fast Color Salts which are stabilized "only with the usual metallic salts, less Water is held bythe stabilized diazonium salts of this invention than is held by the Fast Color Salts, the comparative ratio being in the range of 25 to 50% for the conventionally stabilized diazonium salts to 5 to for the diazonium salts stabilized in accordance with this invention. In order to obtain these results appreciable amounts of the surface active agent are used. Preferably about 5 to 20% of the surface active agent based on the. amount of the diazo compound is employed. Afterfiltering and dry. mixing'of the filter cake it may be noted that. the dusting characteristic I of the drypowdered.

product is decreased-to a, considerable degreeand in many cases the resulting Fast ColorSalts are.

rendered completely non-dusting. ,The resistance. .ofthe resulting stabilized diazonium-salts or Fast Color Salts to decomposition during storage .is also greatly improved by the use of they surface active agents. In order to inhibit decomposition of stabilized diazonium salts during storage, it is necessary thatthey be kept as dry as possible. This isaccomplished generally by. ad-- mixingwith the stabilizedtdiazonium salts anhy drous agents, such-as the'ianhydrous sodium sul-- fate,.anhydrousmagnesium sulfate and partially dehydratedaluminum'sulfate mentioned above. These compounds combine with water'to form Water of crystallization and thus keep the di azonium saltsdry. The less water initially pres ent in the filter cakeithe smaller the amount of dehydrating agent which'must be used. In view of the large crystal structure or increased crystal" aggregate formation resulting from the partial surface activecompound stabilization of this invention, the filter cake contains only a fraction of the-water which "is present in'the same di-' azonium salt stabilized by the usual complex salt formation with such compounds as ZnClzand hence requires smaller amounts of the dehydrating agents. Also-the necessity for rigorous'oven drying is eliminated in those cases where the Fast Color'Salts stabilized with the usual stabiliz ers' retain a large amount of-waten In' such cases it is normally necessary not only to hydraulically press them, but also to pre-dry them in ovens heated to approximately 40 C. for from 12 hours to 2 days inorderto bring down the water content. Only after such rigorous drying treatment can they be dry mixed in the usual way. In'the'case' of the surface active agent stabilized diazonium compound of this invention the stabilized diazonium salt pound due to exposure to periods of time is averted.

The following examples will serve to more fully illustrate this invention. It is understood, however, that the invention is not limited'to the.

specific conditions obtaining in these examples which are intended toloe illustrative of the best will be in such aform that only-a fraction'of the water is retained. Hence'dry mixing can be effected immediatelywith the dehydratingagents-and thedangero'f' at least partial decomposition of the diazo come excessive heat for long 'rnahner to effect the products. Unless otherwise This mixture is then cooled to ,10 C. and 13.8 gr.
