Chemical Description

  • Cyclohexane is a colorless, volatile, and flammable liquid with the formula C6H12.
  • It has a mild odor and is insoluble in water but soluble in alcohol, ether, acetone, benzene, and ligroin.
  • Cyclohexane occurs naturally in petroleum crude oil, volcanic gas, and cigarette smoke.
  • Cyclohexane is used to make adipic acid, caprolactam, and hexamethylenediamine (accounting for 98% of total consumption).
  • A small part is used to make cyclohexylamine and other aspects, such as fiber ethers, fats, and oils.
  • Solvents for waxes, asphalts, resins, and rubber Chemicalbook glues; organic and recrystallization media; paint and varnish removers, etc.
  • It can be used as raw material for nylon 6 and nylon 66.
  • It can also be used as a polymerization diluent, paint release agent, detergent, adipic acid extractant, and adhesive, etc.
  • Cyclohexane is commonly used as a non-polar solvent in the chemical industry due to its ability to dissolve substances that are not easily soluble in water.
  • A significant portion of cyclohexane is used as a precursor in the production of nylon.
  • It is oxidized to produce cyclohexanone and cyclohexanol, which are then used to manufacture adipic acid and caprolactam, key intermediates in nylon production.
  • In laboratories, cyclohexane is used as a solvent for chemical reactions and chromatography due to its relatively low reactivity and compatibility with many organic compounds.
  • Due to its solvent properties, cyclohexane is used in the formulation of adhesives and sealants.
  • It helps in dissolving other components and improves the application properties of these products.
  • It is used as a standard or reference material in environmental testing and analytical chemistry to help calibrate equipment and ensure accurate measurement of other chemicals.
  • It is used in the production of certain paints and coatings, providing properties that enhance the drying process and finish of the coatings.
  • Cyclohexane can be dehydrogenated to benzene, releasing hydrogen, which can then be used as a clean fuel.
  • Available in 180 Kg drums packaging.
