Steckler Robert: Sulfates of monoethylenically unsaturated alcohols and the alkenoxylated adducts of said alcohols. Alcolac, Kellog Henry B, Tone George L, April 1, 1975: US3875202 (21 worldwide citation)

Monoethylenically unsaturated alcohols of from 3 to 12 carbon atoms or the alkenoxylated adducts of such alcohols are reacted with a sulfating agent, such as, for example, sulfamic acid in the presence of an organic amide, i.e., urea, etc., as a catalyst at a temperature of about 85.degree. to about ...
