MISCELLANEOUS | CYCLOHEXANONE
Cyclohexanone (CYC) is a clear oily liquid that has a colourless to light yellow colour and a sharp odour. It has the formula C6H10O and is slightly soluble in water and is completely miscible with common solvents. It occurs naturally in crude oils and is also produced synthetically, in large quantities, as it is a key intermediate in the production of nylon.
Cyclohexanone is used in the production of specific target molecules. In fact, the consumption of cyclohexanone is linked almost entirely to the nylon industry with derivatives of it used to produce adipic acid and caprolactam, which are precursors for nylon 6. Up to 70% of the world’s caprolactam is produced via cyclohexanone. Other cyclohexanone derivatives are used for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, dyes, herbicides, pesticides, plasticizers and rubber chemicals.
