About Cyclohexane. Cyclohexane is a relatively stable cycloalkane, present in crude oils in concentrations of 0.1–1.0%. On a commercial scale, Cyclohexane production is almost entirely based on the catalytic hydrogenation of benzene, which can be conducted in the liquid phase or in the vapor phase in the presence of hydrogen. Nickel, platinum, or palladium have been used as catalyst in such Cyclohexane processes. Since 1980, Cyclohexane consumption had been around 2–3 % per year, because its growth is limited by the nylon market, and it may be better that new investments are made in Asia and in the Middle East.

Cyclohexane is a colorless, flammable liquid, 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. To a lesser extent, this cycloparaffin is produced from the naphtha fraction from crude oil, by superfractionation.

Cyclohexane must be stored in cool, dry, well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight, away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition. Explosion-proof ventilating equipment is recommended. Cyclohexane should not be stored near oxidizing agents or acidic material. Carbon steel, stainless steel, glass, Teflon and Viton can be used as packaging materials. Polypropylene tanks or containers should be avoided. It is transported by barge, pipeline and rail for long distances, and by truck for short distances.

Cyclohexane has been primarily manufactured from hydrogenation of benzene, which can be carried out in both liquid and gaseous phases, in the presence of different metal-based catalysts. This chemical may also be obtained from naphtha fractionation, or by isomerization of methylcyclopentane. Raw materials and the respective production processes employed in the manufacturing of Cyclohexane are listed below.

  • Benzene + hydrogen (hydrogenation),
  • Naphtha (fractionation),
  • Methylcyclopentane (isomerization/fractionation)

The uses and applications of Cyclohexane may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Cyclohexane are 85 wt% minimum purity; 98 wt% minimum purity; and 99.9 wt% minimum purity.

Price Dynamics. The Cyclohexane price in United States decreased during November 2018 to 939 USD per metric ton, which represents a slight decline of 0.8% compared to the previous month’s value. On a year-over-year basis, Cyclohexane prices in United States increased modestly by 0.4%. Meanwhile, in Belgium, the average price of Cyclohexane amounted to 981 USD per metric ton, from 895 USD per metric ton one year earlier. On a month-over-month basis, the Cyclohexane price in Belgium is 0.9% higher than the price one month before.

The price of Cyclohexane in South Korea declined considerably throughout November 2018, reaching 796 USD per metric ton.  The price in South Korea is 14% lower than the average price in the previous month and 11% lower than the average price one year before. In contrast, Cyclohexane prices in Thailand decreased significantly during November 2018, reaching 796 USD per metric ton, which means a decline of 8% from the previous month’s price and a decline of 7% from the previous year’s price. 

The Cyclohexane prices in Saudi Arabia experienced a modest decline of 31 USD per metric ton from the prior month's price, to 934 USD per metric ton. Such price movement in Saudi Arabia meant a decrease of 3% on a monthly basis and a rise of 6% on a yearly basis. On the other hand, in November 2018, the Cyclohexane price in Brazil was flat when compared against the previous month's price. The November 2018 price in Brazil is 5% lower than the price one year before.
