Cyclooctan (COAN)

C8-Monomers - Building blocks for your synthesis 

The saturated cyclic hydrocarbon cyclooctane (COAN) is a colorless liquid with a boiling point of 151°C and a freezing point of 12°C.

COAN is formed by catalytic hydrogenation of 1,5-cyclooctadiene, which is easily obtained by the dimerization of butadiene. 

COAN is very easily soluble in apolar substances. It can be used as a solvent whenever the special chemical inertness of saturated cyclic hydrocarbons is required.
