6-Aminohexanoic acid is used as an intermediate in the polymerization of Nylon-6. It is involved in the extraction of aldehydes from the reaction mixture as well as to improve the solubilization of membrane proteins in electrophoresis. It acts as an inhibitor of fibrinolysis.
Has been recommended as a reagent for the extraction of aldehydes from reaction mixtures, giving better recovery than bisulfite: Chem. Pharm. Bull., 28, 1917 (1980)./n
