Description

Methylcyclohexane is a simple organic hydrocarbon with a molecular formula is C7H14; it is a colourless liquid with a faint benzene-like odor. Methylcyclohexane is used as a solvent and occasionally as a reagent inorganic synthesis and polymer chemistry. It is a component of jet fuel and is used in some consumer products such as correction fluids. It can be handled safely, but is considered a flammable and toxic liquid with consequences in case of human or other environmental exposure.
(Use) Methylcyclohexane is used as an organic solvent and occasionally as a reagent in organic synthesis.e.g. it is useful for dissolving forcellulose ethers and is used in some correction fluids.It is rumoured to be one of many compounds found in the lubricant and water-displacement product WD-40. However, this cannot be confirmed due to WD-40’s formula being a classified trade secret. It is also one of a group of fuel substances used as a component in jet fuel surrogate blends, e.g., for Jet Afuel. Methylcyclohexane
