Preparation of cyclohexene from cyclohexanol. The objective of this exercise is to prepare cyclohexene from cyclohexanol and determine the efficiency of this conversion. This is one of the most common methods of preparing alkenes.
Hydrogen is passed through liquid benzene in the presence of a nickel catalyst under pressure: Cyclohexane is oxidized by passing air through the liquid under pressure in the presence of a catalyst often a cobalt salt to yield two products: An alternative route to cyclohexanol is via the hydrogenation of phenol using a nickel catalyst at ca K and 5 atm: A more recent route to cyclohexanol is the Asahi process from benzene via its hydrogenation to cyclohexene and subsequent hydration to alcohol.
This is more energy efficient than the other processes. To make polyamide 6, pure cyclohexanone is required. When the mixed oil is heated under pressure with copper ll and chromium lll oxides, the cyclohexanol, which is a secondary alcohol, is dehydrogenated to the corresponding ketone, cyclohexanone: Cyclohexanone is then converted into caprolactam via the oxime produced by the reaction of the ketone with hydroxylamine - in the form of the salt, hydroxylamine hydrogensulfate: The isomerisation of the oxime to caprolactam by sulfuric acid is an example of the Beckmann rearrangement in which an oxime is transformed into an amide in the presence of acid.
A zeolitewith acidic sites, is also being used to effect the rearrangement. The zeolite is regenerated and saves the use of sulfuric acid. To produce the polymer, the caprolactam, water acting as a catalyst and a molecular mass regulator, e.
This is an example of a batch process. Polyamide 6,6 is produced by reacting 1,6-diaminohexane hexamethylenediamine with hexanedioic acid adipic acid by condensation polymerization. One of the monomers, hexanedioic acid is also produced from KA mixed oil cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone.
This process has a considerable disadvantage. A side-product is nitrogen I oxide nitrous oxideN2O, a powerful greenhouse gas but it is carefully removed by thermal or catalytic treatment units.
The second monomer, 1,6-diaminohexane, is produced from buta-1,3-diene and from propenonitrile polyacrylonitrile. To form the polymer, the acid and the diamine are then heated together to form a salt. The chemical reaction for aliphatic dicarboxylic acids and aliphatic diamines to yield an aliphatic polyamide via a condensation polymerization process can be represented, thus: The chain length is regulated by controlling process conditions, such as reaction time, temperature and pressure.
An aqueous solution of the salt is heated, in the absence of air, to ca K. A pressure develops in the vessel. The temperature is then raised to K, and the steam is bled off to keep the pressure constant.
Eventually, the pressure is reduced and the polymer is extruded under nitrogen to yield a lace which is then granulated Figure 4. Figure 4 The granules are a polyamide from which the frames of the glasses have been moulded. By kind permission of Arkema.

NICODOM FTIR Solvents The infrared spectral library „NICODOM FTIR Solvents“ contains FTIR spectra of solvents. The spectra were collected using the . Cyclohexanol is the organic compound with the formula HOCH(CH 2) 5.
The molecule is related to cyclohexane ring by replacement of one hydrogen atom by a hydroxyl group.  This compound exists as a deliquescent colorless solid with a camphor-like odor, which, when very pure, melts near room temperature.
