Cyclohexanol (C6H11OH) is a colorless, oily liquid with a camphor-like odor. It is obtained by the hydrogenation of phenol. It is slightly toxic and narcotic in high concentrations. Its main uses are as a raw material in the production of nylon, esters and soap, as a solvent and in the textile industry.
Some of its physical characteristics are:
|Molecular weight: 100.16||Critical temperature: 624.3 K|
|Melting point: 298.0 K||Critical pressure: 3.75 MPa|
|Boiling point: 434.3 K||Critical density: 307 kg/m3|
