Product Overview

Cyclohexylamine is a clear colorless to yellow liquid with an ammonia-like odor. It is produced through the reaction of ammonia and cyclohexanol or by catalytic hydrogenation of aniline. Primarily employed as a corrosion inhibitor in boiler water treatment, it also serves as a chemical intermediate in various applications, including rubber processing, dye production, artificial sweeteners (cyclamate), herbicides, and nylon fiber manufacturing.

Cyclohexylamine is a severe irritant to the eyes, skin, and respiratory system. Skin contact can cause burns, and exposure to vapors may lead to narcotic effects. It is flammable and poses a fire hazard. The substance is considered corrosive and incompatible with certain materials. Disposal methods include incineration with proper emission control.
