n-Hexane is a volatile aliphatic hydrocarbon that is flammable in nature and has a faint odour. The chemical formula of Hexane is C6H14; thus, n-Hexane is an alkane surrounded by six carbon atoms. n-hexane, also known as Hexane, is derived from crude oil through the thermal and catalytic cracking process. Hexanes are colorless liquids at room temperature and have boiling points ranging between 50°C and 70°C. n-hexane can dissolve many organic compounds and thus, finds a wide range of industrial applications as a solvent.
In terms of application, n-hexane is used in multiple end-use industries such as adhesives & sealants, pharmaceuticals, polymers, oil extraction and rubber processing. n-hexane plays a key role in the oil extraction process for the extraction of oil from vegetables & seeds. Another key application of n-hexane is as a solvent in the manufacturing of resins. It is also used as an additive in consumer-based products such as inks, glue and varnishes.
