Production Methods

1. Cyclohexane oxidation Cyclohexane in the cobalt catalyst, the first oxidation of cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone, the reaction conditions for 150 ~ -160 ℃, 810 ~ 1013kPa. Cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone oxidation by nitric acid to adipic acid. The reaction conditions are 60 to 80 ° C and 100 to 400 kPa. The crude product is refined by recrystallization to obtain the finished product
2. Butadiene two-step carbonylation of butadiene and carbon monoxide as raw materials, the first butadiene into 3-pentenoic acid methyl ester, and then carbonylation of adipic acid dimethyl ester, and finally obtained by hydrolysis. 3. Hydrocyanation of cyclohexene Hydrogenation of benzene and hydrogen as raw materials for partial hydrogenation of benzene in cyclohexene, and then by hydration to produce cyclohexanol, cyclohexanol oxidation of nitric acid production of adipic acid.
4. Available cyclohexanone or cyclohexanol obtained by the oxidation of nitric acid, and then with concentrated nitric acid treatment of crude, recrystallization obtained pure.
5. tobacco: OR, 44; FC, 54; synthesis: hydrogenated from phenol to cyclohexanol and then catalytic oxidation, or furfural decarbonylation into furan, hydrogenation into tetrahydrofuran, and then under high temperature and pressure with carbon monoxide, Diamine hydrolysis derived. Cyclohexanone can also be oxidized in an acidic solution or prepared by air oxidation of cyclohexanone in an alkaline solution.
6. Procedure: A 1 L reaction vessel equipped with a stirrer, a reflux condenser, a 360 ° C thermometer and a dropping funnel was charged with nitric acid (d1.32) 420g, heated to almost boiling, adding 0.1g of ammonium vanadate, stirring 1mL of cyclohexanol (2), continue stirring for several minutes to the beginning of the reaction, the oxidation of nitrogen released. After cooling to 55-60 ° C, 62.5 g (0.62 mol) of cyclohexanol was added dropwise and maintained at 55 to 60 ° C for about 1.5 h. After the addition of zeolite bath heated to no nitrogen oxide release ①. Crystallization after precipitation. Filtration, washing, drying in the air, in adipic acid (1). Concentration of mother liquor can be adipic acid 10g. Recrystallization from hot water, adipic acid 55g, yield 61.1%, mp151 ~ 150 ℃ ②. Note: ① reaction of the release of nitrogen dioxide gas, should be in the fume hood in the reaction, the release of nitrogen dioxide gas absorption of water. ② Adipic acid can also be used high potassium oxidation of cyclohexanone oxidation of cyclohexanone to prepare.
