Cyclohexanone is an important chemical raw material and is the main intermediate for the manufacture of nylon, caprolactam and adipic acid. It is also an important industrial solvent, for example for paints, especially those containing nitrocellulose, vinyl chloride polymers and their copolymers or methacrylate polymer paints. Excellent solvent for pesticides such as organophosphorus insecticides and many analogues, used as a solvent for dyes, as a viscous solvent for piston aviation lubricants, as a solvent for greases, waxes, and rubbers. It is also used as a leveling agent for dyeing and matting, as well as a degreaser for polishing metals, and for coloring and painting wood. Cyclohexanone can be used for stripping, decontamination, and despeckling. Cyclohexanone is condensed with cyanoacetic acid to obtain cyclohexylidene acetic acid, then eliminated and decarboxylated to cyclohexene acetonitrile, and finally hydrogenated to give cyclohexenylethylamine [3399-73-3]. Cyclohexeneethylamine is a drug Cough cut, Termalon and other intermediates.
Used as a high boiling point solvent for cosmetics such as nail polish. Usually mixed with low-boiling solvents and medium-boiling solvents to obtain a suitable volatilization rate and viscosity.
