It has a role as a non-polar solvent. It is a cycloalkane and a volatile organic compound. Cyclohexane is insoluble in water, soluble in most organic solvents. Very easy to burn. It is mainly used as a raw material in the manufacture of nylon. It can also be used in resins, coatings, fats, paraffin oils, and can also be used to prepare organic substances such as cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone.
Solubility:Insoluble in water, soluble in most organic solvents such as ethanol, ether, benzene, acetone, etc.
