The alkali fusion of alkyl sulfates was investigated by pyrolyzing a mixture of alkyl sulfates and alkali metal hydroxide between 200–500°C. The pyrolyzates were isolated and identified to be 1-olefins, internal olefins, alcohols, and dialkyl ethers by gas chromatography and IR spectroscopy. The mechanism of this reaction was proposed from these results and an attempt was carried out to estimate the alkyl chain carbon number distribution of the commercially available sodium alkyl sulfates.
