According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “N-Hexane Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the global n-hexane market size reached US$ 2,549.6 Million in 2022. N-hexane is a volatile, colorless liquid that belongs to the class of hydrocarbons known as alkanes. It is an aliphatic hydrocarbon with a mild, gasoline-like odor. It is procured from natural gas and crude oil and can also be synthesized by using sugar cane wastes in the presence of special catalysts. It is characterized by a notably low freezing point and exhibits considerable flammability and demonstrates an ability to mix readily with other hydrocarbons and organic solvents. Besides this, it possesses non-polar properties and low reactivity, on account of the stable nature of the carbon-carbon single bonds. It is used as a solvent in the extraction of edible oils from seeds and production of glue and varnish removers.
