Hexamethylenediamine Production Cost Analysis 2021

Hexamethylenediamine is an example of an organic compound. This chemical compound is an example of a diamine that contains a hexamethylene hydrocarbon chain terminated with amine functional groups. In appearance, this is a colourless solid and has a strong amine odour. Hexamethylenediamine is known to be moderately toxic. 

About 1 billion kilograms of this chemical compound is produced annually. The first production of hexamethylenediamine is commonly attributed to Theodor Curtius. Hexamethylenediamine is used almost solely for the creation of polymers, as well as for the applications that take benefits of its core structure. It acts difunctionally with regards to amine groups and is tetra functional with respect to amine hydrogens. The majority of the diamine is consumed by the production of nylon 6,6 via condensation with adipic acid. Hexamethylenediamine is also utilised in the production of hexamethylene diisocyanate (HDI). It is also a cross-linking agent in the production of epoxy resins.
