1,4-Cyclohexadiene is used to study the formation of parent ion from heavy fragmentation on irradiation with a high-intensity laser pulse. It is also used as a very effective hydrogen donor for catalytic hydrogenation reaction. It forms benzene at elevated temperatures in the presence of a ruthenium(II)-triphenylphosphine catalyst.
