About Cyclohexane. 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.
Chemical Formula. C6H12
Commercial Grades. 85%; 98%; 99.86%; spectrophotometric grade
Uses. Almost all cyclohexane produced commercially is employed in the production of adipic acid and caprolactam, precursors to nylon. A very small fraction of the cyclohexane produced is consumed in minor miscellaneous uses, such as solvents, polymer reaction diluents and fungicidal formulations.
- Benzene + hydrogen (hydrogenation)
- Naphtha (fractionation)
- Methylcyclopentane (isomerization/fractionation)
