Laurolactam Production Cost Reports


Laurolactam is an organic compound that belongs to the group of macrocyclic lactams. It is a water-insoluble, crystalline solid, which is usually beige coloured in technical quality and is white when pure. It is miscible in several organic solvents like in 1,4-dioxane, benzene, or cyclohexane.

The purification method of laurolactam is carried out traditionally by multistage distillation under reduced pressure. The combination of distillation and crystallisation by solution or melt yields the purest caprolactam.

Laurolactam is primarily used as a monomer in engineering plastics like for nylon-12 and copolyamides. Ring-opening polymerisation is utilised to polymerise the monomer, laurolactam, to nylon-12. The reaction can be brought on with cationic or anionic initiators or even with water. Cationic polymerisation with acid is believed to include the starting of O-protonation. Nucleophilic attack by the monomer on the reactive protonated nitrogen is carried out by successive ring-opening acylation of the main amine, resulting in the creation of the polyamide.
