Sulfated Castor oil, also known as sulfonated castor oil or Turkey red oil, is one of the derivatives of castor oil which is being extracted from the non-edible seeds of the castor plant. This plant is commercially cultivated for its seed oil which finds multiple applications in chemical industry and other industrial sectors. Castor plant is a native from the tropical belt of both India and Africa. India is among the leading exporters of Caster seeds globally. Castor seed contains around 48 to 50 percent of oil by weight. The sulfated castor oil is being processed out traditionally from the castor oil by adding concentrated sulfuric acid at a monitored rate over a period of several hours with regular cooling and agitation at a controlled temperature. Later the solution mass is being washed and neutralized by using an alkali solution or an amine.
