Cyclohexane is used to prepare cyclohexanone-cyclohexanol mixture (i.e. KA oil) by catalytic oxidation, which finds application as raw material for adipic acid and caprolactam. It is used as an organic solvent, paint remover and involved in the calibration of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) instruments.
