cyclohexane
281
Cyclohexane is a relatively stable cycloalkane, present in crude oils in concentrations of 0.1–1.0%. This cycloparaffin is a colourless, flammable liquid, widely used as an intermediate in nylon manufacturing. It is comprised of a ring of six carbon atoms and has a gasoline-like odor. Cyclohexane is soluble in ether, alcohol, chlorinated/aromatic solvents and insoluble in water.
