DESCRIPTION

Cyclohexane is an alicyclic hydrocarbon comprising a ring of six carbon atoms with molecular formula C6H12. Cyclohexane appears as a clear colorless liquid with a petroleum-like odor. It is insoluble in water and is volatile in nature.

APPLICATION

·        Over 98% of the cyclohexane produced is used   to   make nylon intermediates: adipic   acid (60%), caprolactam, and hexamethylenediamine .

 

·        It is used as a solvent for lacquers, resins and synthetic rubber.

 

·        Cyclohexane is also used in manufacturing of solid fuel for camp stoves and and in fungicidal formulations (possesses slight fungicidal action).

 

The industrial recrystallization of steroids also requires cyclohexane
