cyclohexanone technical grade

Product name cyclohexanone technical grade
GOST 24615-81
CAS 108-94-1

Cyclohexanone is a colorless, clear, oily liquid with acetone-like and mint-like odor. It is boundedly soluble in water, but miscible with most organic solvents.


Cyclohexanone is manufactured by:

  • cyclohexane oxidation with oxygene of air at 140-165°C and 0.9-1.6 MPa and in the presence of cobalt naphthenate or stearate;
  • vapour phase catalytic cyclohexanol dehydrogenation at >220°C;
  • joitly with cyclohexanol by catalytic hydrogenation of phenol in gaseous phase at 120-140°C and 0.3 MPa:

    C6H5OH + 5H2 --> C6H11OH + C6H10O + 147 kJ/mol


  • as an intermediate in preparation of adipic acid, caprolactam, cyclohexanone oxime, cyclohexanone resins;
  • as a solvent for cellulose acetates and nitrates, fats, waxes, natural resins, polyvinyl chloride, dyes;
  • as a component of dry cleaning agents;
