Cyclohexane Production Cost Analysis 2020

Cyclohexane is also known as cycloalkane. Cyclohexane is a colourless and flammable liquid with a unique and different detergent-like odour, reminiscent of cleaning products. 
Commercially, cyclohexane is manufactured by the hydrogenation of benzene in the presence of a Raney nickel catalyst. It is primarily utilised for the commercial manufacturing of adipic acid and caprolactam, which are known precursors to nylon. 

Cyclohexyl is the alkyl substituent of cyclohexane and is often abbreviated as Cy. The cyclohexanone–cyclohexanol mixture, coined as the KA oil, is a raw material for adipic acid as well as for caprolactam. 

Cyclohexane is also utilised as a solvent in some brands of correction fluid. It is often used as a non-polar organic solvent. It is rapidly being utilised as a recrystallisation solvent, as numerous organic compounds exhibit superior solubility in hot cyclohexane and subpar solubility at low temperatures.
