Laurolactam Production Cost Report

Laurolactam (LL) (C12H23NO) is an organic compound. It belongs to the macrocyclic lactams class and is mainly used as a monomer to produce nylon-12 and other polyamides. It is produced by oxidising cyclododecane with air or oxygen in the presence of boric acid and transition metal salts. It is conventionally purified by multistage distillation under reduced pressure; distillation and crystallisation produce the purest caprolactam.

Laurolactam looks like a white crystalline solid in its pure state and is typically beige in colour in technical quality. It is soluble in water with a water solubility of 223mg/L at 20? and readily soluble in organic solvents such as benzene, 1,4-dioxane, and cyclohexane. It has a molecular weight of 197.32 and a density of 0.9415 (roughly). It has a respective melting, boiling, and flash point of 150-153°C(lit.), 334.44°C (roughly), and 195°C. It is extremely toxic for aquatic life, resulting in long-term effects.

Laurolactam is mainly used as a monomer in engineering plastic, like copolyamides and Nylon 12. Nylon 12 has a broad spectrum of applications, like in the food industries as polyamide additives and in packaging material as films. In addition, the nylon 12 films and bag-sterilised versions are extensively used in the medical and pharmaceutical sectors. It is also employed in polyamide 6 as a co-monomer. The chemical in a sintered powder form and sheets form is used for coating metals, which is propelling the industry forward.

In addition, nylon 12 is being rapidly adopted to cover cables and insulate material because of its low water absorption property, which furthers the market growth. Apart from this, it finds application in the form of nylon 12 in the cosmetics segment as an opacifying agent in body powders and creams which is boosting the industry demand further. Also, it has wide usage in the textile industry for making leisure and sports products which will likely help expand the market.
