Production Processes

  • Production of Azepan-2-one from Buckmann Rearrangement Process; from Benzene; from Cyclohexane

Using Buckmann Rearrangement process, cyclohexanone is reacted with hydroxylamine sulphate, and is converted into cyclohexanone oxime. The produced cyclohexanone oxime is then treated with sulphuric acid, which causes Beckmann rearrangement to produce caprolactam bisulphate salt. This is followed by the neutralisation of the caprolactam bisulphate salt with ammonia to cogenerate ammonium sulphate and, finally, caprolactam.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated.
