Cyclohexanol is a clear liquid or solid substance – solidification point of pure cyclohexanol 25oC. It is obtained through cyclohexane oxidation. Cyclohexanol is moderately water soluble (9% m/m at 20oC) and has unlimited solubility in: ethyl alcohol, ethyl ether, toluene, petroleum ether, ethyl acetate, oils, benzene and other aromatic hydrocarbons.
Technical cyclohexanol must be stored in containers mentioned above or specially adapted storage tanks in mechanically ventilated, fireproof rooms equipped with indirect heating devices (due to the high solidification temperature: 25oC). Nitrogen inerting, vent valves and appropriate measuring equipment are required. Storage of cyclohexanol together with materials in the same hazard class is permissible.
