Cyclohexanecarboxylic acid Usage And Synthesis
  • Description

    Cyclohexanecarboxylic acid, also known as hexahydrobenzoic acid or carboxycyclohexane, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as carboxylic acids. Carboxylic acids are compounds containing a carboxylic acid group with the formula -C(=O)OH. Cyclohexanecarboxylic acid is a weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). Cyclohexanecarboxylic acid exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. Cyclohexanecarboxylic acid is an acidic, cheese, and fruity tasting compound. Outside of the human body,. A monocarboxylic acid that consists of cyclohexane substituted by a carboxy group.

    Cyclohexanecarboxylic acid

  • ApplicationCyclohexanecarboxylic acid is a precursor to the nylon-6 precursor caprolactam via its reaction with nitrosylsulfuric acid. It can also be oxidized to cyclohexene. Cyclohexanecarboxylic acid exhibits the reactions typical of carboxylic acids, including its conversion to the acid chloride cyclohexanecarbonyl chloride.
  • Chemical PropertiesWhite crystalline solid
  • Chemical PropertiesCyclohexanecarboxylic acid has a cheese-like odor.
  • UsesPaint and varnish driers, dry-cleaning soaps, lubricating oils, stabilizer for rubber.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A monocarboxylic acid that consists of cyclohexane substituted by a carboxy group.
  • Taste threshold valuesTaste characteristics at 5 ppm: fruity, woody, berry-like with green dirty nuances

  • Purification MethodsCrystallise the acid from hot H2O (solubility is 0.2% w/w at 15o), it is soluble in organic solvents. Also distil it at as high a vacuum as possible and warm the condenser as it solidifies on cooling.The acid chloride M 146.6, has b 184o/atm, d2 5 1.096, the methyl ester has b 183o/atm, and the S-benzylisothiuronium salt has m 165-166o (from EtOH).
