Docusate sodium

Docusate or also known as docusate salts or dioctyl sulfosuccinate, is a laxative of the stool softener type used to treat constipation. Dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate is approved for use in a variety of food products. It is approved for use as a surface-active agent, stabilizer, thickener, wetting agent, processing aid, solubilizing agent, emulsifying agent, and dispersing agent in foods. The highest amount found in food products is 0.5% by weight, which include pasteurized cheese spreads, cream, cheeses, and salad dressings. In food it is a thickener with E number of E480. The sodium salt, dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate, also is used as a food additive, emulsifier, dispersant, and wetting agent, among other uses. Dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate is used as a surfactant in a wide range of applications. It is also used as an excipient in pharmaceutical industry.

Docusate Sodium contains NLT 99.0% and NMT 100.5% of C20H37NaO7S, calculated on the anhydrous basis.

Sample: Place a small piece of Docusate Sodium on a salt plate, add one drop of acetone, and promptly cover with another salt plate. Rub the plates together to dissolve the specimen, slide the plates apart, and allow the acetone to evaporate.
Acceptance criteria: The IR absorption spectrum of the film exhibits maxima only at the same wavelengths as that of a similar preparation of USP Docusate Sodium.

Solution A: 2.5 g/L of tetra-n-butylammonium iodide in water
Solution B: A mixture of 100 g/L of anhydrous sodium sulfate and 10 g/L of sodium carbonate in water
Sample: 50 mg
Analysis: Dissolve the Sample in 50 mL of chloroform in a glass-stoppered, 250-mL conical flask. Add 50 mL of Solution B and 500 µL of bromophenol blue TS. Titrate with Solution A until 1 mL from the endpoint, and shake the stoppered flask vigorously for 2 min. Continue the titration in two-drop increments, shaking vigorously for 10 s after each addition, and then allow the flask to stand 10 s. Continue the titration until the chloroform layer just assumes a blue color. Each mL of Solution A is equivalent to 3.009 mg of C20H37NaO7S.

Always seek medical attention after first aid measures are provided.

Eye Contact: Do not allow victim to rub eye (s). Let the eye (s) water naturally for a few minutes. If particle/dust does not dislodge, flush with lukewarm, gently flowing water for 5 minutes or until particle/dust is removed, while holding eyelid (s) open. If irritation persists, obtain medical attention. DO NOT attempt to manually remove anything stuck to the eye.
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing, shoes and leather goods (e.g. watchbands, belts). Quickly and gently blot or brush away excess chemical. Wash gently and thoroughly with lukewarm gently flowing water and non-abrasive soap for 5 minutes. If irritation persists, repeat flushing. Obtain medical advice. Completely decontaminate clothing, shoes and leather goods before reuse or else discard.
Inhalation: If symptoms are experienced, remove source of contamination or move victim to fresh air. Obtain medical advice.
Ingestion: Never give anything by mouth if victim is rapidly losing consciousness or is unconscious or convulsing. Have victim rinse mouth thoroughly with water. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING.


Flash Point: 170C
Fire and Explosion Hazards: Will burn on heating.
Extinguishing Media: Use means of extinction appropriate for the surrounding fire conditions such as water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical, or foam.
Fire Fighting: Apart from oxides of carbon. toxic fumes of sulfur dioxide and undefined fumes may result from combustion. Closed containers may explode from heat of a fire. As with any fire, fire fighters should be fully trained and wear full protective clothing including an approved, self-contained breathing apparatus which supplies a positive air pressure within a full-face piece mask. Do not use water directly on material. Do not allow water run-off to enter sewers or watercourses. Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
Special Information: In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode. At high temperatures under fire conditions, it may produce toxic or irritating fumes.


Procedures for Cleanup: Stop release if possible to do so safely. Contain spill, isolate hazard area, and deny entry. Sweep up or vacuum. Place contaminated material in suitable, labeled containers for final disposal. Dispose of waste material consistent with the requirements of waste disposal authorities.
Personal Precautions: Gloves and coveralls or other protective clothing are recommended for persons responding to an accidental release. Close-fitting safety goggles may be necessary in some circumstances to prevent eye contact.
Environmental Precautions: Contamination of soil and water should be prevented. Keep spillage and runoff from storage areas from entering soil, streams or sewers.


Precautions for safe handling: Apply according to good manufacturing and industrial hygiene practices. Ensure proper ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not drink, eat or smoke while handling. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Minimize dust generation. Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc). Prevent any contact with hot surfaces.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take measures to prevent the build-up of electrostatic charge. Store in cool, dry and ventilated area away from heat sources and protected from sunlight in tightly closed original container. Keep air contact to a minimum. generating dust and the release of dust into the workplace. Do not leave the material container open. Store protected from heat, sparks and ignition sources and incompatible materials. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not store with incompatible materials like oxidizing agents


Exposure Guidelines: This product does not contain any hazardous materials with occupational exposure limits established by the region-specific regulatory bodies.
Ventilation System: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator may be worn. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Control Measures: Maintain good housekeeping in work area. Dust deposits on floors and other surfaces may pick up moisture and cause the surfaces to become slippery and present safety hazards. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands after handling.
