CAS Number: 110-82-7. A pungent, saturated, cyclic hydrocarbon found in petroleum or made synthetically. Used as a solvent and in organic synthesis. Chemical formula = C6H12. Molecular weight = 84.16 g/mol.
Cyclohexane is a cycloalkane with the molecular formula C6H12. Cyclohexane is used as a nonpolar solvent for the chemical industry, and also as a raw material for the industrial production of adipic acid and caprolactam, both of which are intermediates used in the production of nylon. Due to its unique chemical and conformational properties, cyclohexane is also used in labs in analysis and as a standard.
