Cyclohexane

Cyclohexanone is an important organic synthesis raw material, a saturated cyclic ketone with the carbonyl carbon atom included in a six-membered ring. It is a colorless, transparent liquid with an earthy odor. When trace amounts of phenol are present, it has a minty smell. It is slightly soluble in water and miscible with alcohol, ether, benzene, acetone, and most other organic solvents. Its explosive limits when mixed with air are similar to those of open-chain saturated ketones.

What is Cyclohexane?

Cyclohexane is a colorless, flammable liquid with a distinctive detergent-like odor, commonly used as a non-polar solvent in the chemical industry. Its molecular formula is C₆H₁₂, and it is a saturated hydrocarbon, specifically a cycloalkane. Cyclohexane is primarily utilized in the production of adipic acid and caprolactam, which are precursors to nylon 6,6 and nylon 6, respectively.

Additionally, it is used in various industrial applications such as the manufacture of varnishes, resins, and coatings, as well as in laboratory settings as a solvent and in organic synthesis. Its role in the petrochemical industry is also significant, where it is involved in the processing of crude oil and the production of other chemicals through hydrogenation and other reactions.

Safety Is An Important Guarantee

Safety is our top priority. 

To ensure your safety while using Cyclohexane, please be sure to download and carefully read the accompanying Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

This document provides detailed safety guidelines, including how to handle potential hazards, accident response, and proper storage methods. It will help you understand and safely use Cyclohexane, ensuring personal safety and environmental protection.

Packing:150KG Iron Drum

A 150KG iron drum used for storing and transporting cyclohexane is specifically designed to handle the chemical’s characteristics.

Cyclohexane, being a flammable and volatile liquid, requires secure and durable containers. These iron drums are constructed from high-quality iron to ensure robustness and resistance to damage.

The drums feature secure sealing mechanisms, such as tight-fitting lids or bung closures, to prevent leaks and evaporation, thereby maintaining the safety and integrity of the cyclohexane during storage and transportation.

FAQ

Cyclohexane has several important physical and chemical properties:

  • Molecular Formula: C₆H₁₂
  • Appearance: Colorless, volatile liquid with a mild, sweet odor.
  • Boiling Point: Approximately 80.7°C (177.3°F)
  • Density: Around 0.78 g/cm³ at 20°C
  • Solubility: Insoluble in water but miscible with most organic solvents.
  • Chemical Stability: Stable under normal conditions but can react with strong oxidizing agents.

Awareness of health and environmental impacts is essential when using Cyclohexane:

  • Health: Cyclohexane can cause dizziness, headache, and nausea if inhaled. Prolonged or repeated exposure may affect the central nervous system. Avoid inhalation and direct contact with skin or eyes.
  • Environment: Cyclohexane is volatile and can contribute to air pollution. It is also harmful to aquatic life. Proper handling, storage, and disposal measures should be followed to minimize environmental impact.

Prompt action is required in case of a spill or exposure:

  • Spill Response: Evacuate the area and ventilate. Use non-sparking tools to clean up the spill. Absorb with inert material (e.g., sand, earth) and place in a chemical waste container for proper disposal.
  • Exposure Response: If inhaled, move the person to fresh air and seek medical attention if symptoms persist. In case of skin contact, wash thoroughly with soap and water. If Cyclohexane gets into the eyes, rinse with plenty of water and seek medical attention.
