C8-Monomers - Building blocks for your synthesis
The doubly unsaturated cyclic hydrocarbon 4-vinylcyclohexene (VCH) is a colorless liquid with a boiling point of 126°C and a pungent odor.
- VCH is formed by dimerization of butadiene.
- VCH is a precursor in the production of flame retardants.
- It is hydrogenated to ethylcyclohexane, a solvent for apolar substances.
It also serves as an intermediate in the synthesis of specialty chemicals.
