Description & Applications :

We offer a complex range of Cyclohexane that is enriched with different properties including stability and chemical reactivity. It is used as a nonpolar solvent for the chemical industry and also as a raw material for the industrial production of adipic acid and caprolactam, both of which are intermediates used in the production of nylon. Unlike other compounds Cyclohexane cannot be obtained from natural resources such as coal. It is used in a number of industrial applications. The primary use of cyclohexane, accounting for approximately 58 percent of all use, is in the production of adipic acid, a nylon intermediate. Cyclohexane is also used in the production of caprolactam, another nylon intermediate. Small amounts are used as a solvent for lacquers and resins; as a paint and varnish remover; as an intermediate in the manufacture of benzene, cyclohexanone, and itrocyclohexane; as fuel for camp stoves; as an ingredient in fungicidal formulations; and in the industrial recrystallization of steroids. The chemical does not form a planar hexagonal arrangement with interior bond angles of 120. The chair conformation is a term used for the arrangement that the chemical possess. Scientists named Derek Barton and Odd Hassel both shared the NobelPrize for work on the conformations of cyclohexane and various other molecules. Cyclohexane is a cycloalkane with the molecular formula C6H12 (the alkyl is abbreviated Cy). Cyclohexane is mainly used for the industrial production of adipic acid and caprolactam, which are precursors to nylon. Cyclohexane is a colourless, flammable liquid with a distinctive detergent like odor, reminiscent of cleaning products (in which it is sometimes used)
