Hexane Production Cost Analysis 2020
Hexane is a well-known alkane that is made up of six carbon atoms. The molecular weight of hexane is about 86.18 g/mol. It is known to be the constituent of gasoline. Hexane is a colourless, odourless liquid. It has a boiling point between 50 and 70 °C, i.e., about 122 and 158 °F. It is most commonly used as a non-polar solvent as it is relatively cheaper, largely unreactive, and easily evaporated.
Hexanes are chiefly derived by refining crude oil. Commercially, hexane is utilised in the formulation of glues for shoes, leather products, as well as for roofing. Hexane is also utilised to extract cooking oils, for example, the canola oil or soy oil from seeds, for cleansing as well as for degreasing a variety of items, and in textile manufacturing. As hexane cannot be easily deprotonated, it is also utilised in the laboratory for reactions, which include very strong bases, for example, in the preparation of organolithiums. Another important use of hexane is in chromatography, as a non-polar solvent.
