General description

Cyclohexanone, a colorless liquid is a cyclic ketone. It is an important building block for the synthesis of a variety of organic compounds. Majority of the cyclohexanone synthesized is utilized as an intermediate in the synthesis of nylon. One of the methods reported for its synthesis is by the palladium catalyzed hydrogenation of phenol. The kinetics of the oxidation reaction of cyclohexanone has been studied in a fused silica jet stirred reactor. The Meerwein–Ponndorf–Verley reduction of cyclohexanone has been reported.

Baeyer-Villiger Oxidation Reaction

The Baeyer–Villiger reaction involves the oxidation of ketones to esters by C-C bond cleavage of the carbonyl group and the introduction of an oxygen atom adjacent to it.1 This reaction can be accomp...

Determination of Water Content in Cyclohexanone Using Karl Fischer Titration

Ketones have a tendency to form ketals. At the same time water is formed. Cyclohexanone and acetone react rapidly, long chain ketones react more slowly. Aromatically substituted ketones only react ve...
