Properties & Applications & PackagesInquiry
Cyclohexane is volatile and highly flammable. It is a colorless fluid liquid with the smell of gasoline. It is insoluble in water and miscible with various organic solvents such as ethanol, ether, acetone, and benzene.

Used to prepare cyclohexanol, cyclohexanone, caprolactam, adipic acid and nylon 6, etc. Cyclohexane is mainly used to make cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone (about 90%), and further produces adipic acid and caprolactam. They are monomers used in the production of polyamide. A small amount of it is used as an industrial and coating solvent. It is an excellent solvent for resins, fats, paraffin oils, butyl rubber, etc. In addition, cyclohexane is also used in the pharmaceutical industry for the synthesis of pharmaceutical intermediates. Cyclohexane is especially suitable as a solvent for styrene-butadiene rubber, and its consumption is generally more than 4 times the input amount. 90% of cyclohexane is used in the production of cyclohexanone, which is an intermediate product in the production of caprolactam and adipic acid. It is also used as a general solvent, chromatographic analysis standard material, photoresist solvent and organic synthesis.
