Physical and Chemical Properties
Cyclohexylamine is a kind of transparent and colorless liquid with a strong fishy taste and ammonia-like smelling. It is flammable with a relative molecular mass being 99.18, the relative density being 0.8191, the melting point being-17.7 ℃, boiling point being 134.5 ℃, 118.9 ℃ (6.67 × 104Pa), 102.5 ℃ (4.00 × 104Pa), 72.0 ℃ (1.33 × 104Pa), 56.0 ℃ (6.67 × 103Pa), 45.1 ℃ (4.00 × 103Pa), 41.3 ℃ (3.33 × 103Pa ), 36.4 ℃ (2.67 × 103Pa), 30.5 ℃ (1.99 × 103Pa), 25.0 ℃ (1.17 × 103Pa), the refractive index being 1.4372, the flash point being 32 ℃ and the ignition point being 265 ℃. It is soluble in water and can be miscible with common organic solvents such as ethanol, ethyl ether, acetone, ethyl acetate, chloroform, heptane, benzene and the like. Cyclohexylamine can be evaporated together with the steam and can absorb the carbon dioxide in the air to form a white crystalline carbonate. It can form azeotrope with water with the co-boiling point being 96.4 ℃ and water content being 55.8%. Its aqueous solution is alkaline. The pH of 0.01% aqueous solution of 0.01% is 10.5. Its steam can form explosive mixture with air. This product is toxic and irritating to the skin and mucous membranes, causing gangrene; inhaling its vapors has a narcotic effect but without causing blood poisoning. Rat oral administration: LD50: 710 mg/kg. The maximal allowable concentration in workplace is 10 × 10-6.
Heating cyclohexylamine together with hydrogen iodide in a sealed tube at 200 ℃ can generate methyl cyclopentane. Heating cyclohexylamine together with dimethyl sulfate in ether generate methyl cyclohexane and a small amount of dimethyl cyclohexylamine as well. Its hydrochloride can have reaction with sodium nitrite salt to generate cyclohexanol. Its reaction with excess amount of ammonia and zinc chloride can generate 2-methyl-pyridine.
Preparation: they finished product of cyclohexylamine can produced through catalyzing the reduction action of aniline at a high temperature and high pressure (with nickel or cobalt as the catalyst); it can also be produced by taking the cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone as the raw material produced from catalytic reduction of phenol, and further go through amination action with ammonia to prepare it. In industry, cyclohexylamine is mainly used as the thiazole vulcanization accelerator of rubber as well as being used as the tank cleaning agent, dyeing auxiliaries and surfactants.

Toxic oxides of nitrogen are produced during combustion. Nitric acid; reacts vigorously with oxiding materials. Stable, avoid physical damage, storage with oxidizing material.
Flammability and hazard characteristics
it is flammable in case of fire, heat, and oxidants with combustion producing toxic fumes of nitrogen oxides.
Dry the amine with CaCl2 or LiAlH4, then distil it from BaO, KOH or Na, under N2. Also purify it by conversion to the hydrochloride (which is crystallised several times from water), then liberation of the amine with alkali and fractional distillation under N2. The hydrochloride has m 205-207o (dioxane/EtOH). [Lycan et al. Org Synth Coll Vol II 319 1943, Beilstein 12 III 10, 12 IV 8.]
Cyclohexylamine neutralizes acids in exothermic reactions to form salts plus water. May be incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides. Flammable gaseous hydrogen may be generated in combination with strong reducing agents, such as hydrides.
It is derived from the catalyzed hydrogenation of aniline. The process can be divided into normal pressure method and reduced pressure method. In addition, other routes such as the catalytic aminolysis of either cyclohexane or cyclohexanol, the reduction of nitro cyclohexane, and the catalyzed aminolysis of cyclohexanone can also be applied for produce cyclohexylamine.
The preparation method is using aniline as raw materials and going through catalytic hydrogenation. Mix the aniline vapor and hydrogen gas and pour into the catalytic reactor; carry out the hydrogenation reaction at 130 to 170 ℃ in the presence of a cobalt catalyst with the finished product obtained after cooling and further distillation.
