Also known as aminocyclohexane, hexahydroaniline, hexahydrobenzenamine or amino hexahydrobenzene, cyclohexylamine is an organic compound part of the aliphatic amine group, with the formula C6H13N and 99.17 g/mol molecular weight.
With a characteristic “fishy” odour, cyclohelylamine forms a colourless solution when pure, but solutions are easily coloured by contaminants. It’s miscible with water, as well as most organic solvents including ether, alcohol, ketone, ester and acetone, for example.
Like other amines, it’s a weak base (pH around 10) when compared to sodium hydroxide, but it’s nevertheless stronger than its aromatic counterpart, aniline. In addition, when distilled with water, it forms an azeotropic mix with a boiling point at 96 degree Celsius at 760 mm Hg and it reacts in the presence of zinc chloride and ammonia at high temperatures to generate alpha picoline.
In terms of applications, it can be used as a precursor in the manufacture of many different organic compounds, or as a corrosion inhibitor in boiler water treatment. Other less common uses include:
- Metal extraction
- Oil field corrosion inhibitors
