Trade name: Technical cyclohexanone
Chemical name: Cyclohexanone
PKWiU classification: 18.104.22.168
CN classification: 2914 22 00 00
EKD classification: 2414
Clear, colourless liquid with potential light yellow colour. Obtained through the process of selective phenol hydrogenation or cyclohexane oxidation. Cyclohexanone is slightly water soluble (3,75% m/m at 25oC) and has unlimited solubility in most organic solvents.
Used primarily for the production of caprolactam and adipic acid. Additionally, it is used in the paint, varnishes, solvents, dyes, printing paste, glue, hardener and pesticide industries. It is also used as a laboratory reagent.
Technical cyclohexanone should be stored in containers described above or in steel storage containers, in mechanically ventilated fireproof rooms with anti-explosive electrical installation and electro-conductive flooring, unheated at temperatures below 30oC. Nitrogen inerting of containers is required.
