Cyclohexylamine is an organic compound, belonging to the aliphatic amine class. It is a colorless liquid, although, like many amines, samples are often colored due to contaminants. It has a fishy odor and is miscible with water. Like other amines, it is a weak base, compared to strong bases such as NaOH, but it is a stronger base than its aromatic analog, aniline.
It is a useful intermediate in the production of many other organic compounds. It is a metabolite of cyclamate.
Cyclohexylamine application area,the production of:
---antioxidants in rubber and plastics
---vulcanization accelerators for rubber
---corrosion inhibitors in steam pipes and boilers
---catalysts for flexible polyurethane foams
