Chemical intermediates DOMO

A reliable source of high-purity caprolactam – and all that goes before

One of the most famous natural polyamides is silk, which silkworms produce from mulberry leaves. The synthesis route we use to make polyamide 6 – better known as nylon 6, of which we are a leading supplier – has the advantage of also making available many other valuable chemicals and intermediates.

Starting from benzene, the first part of the synthesis produces cumene, phenol, acetone, acetophenone and alpha-methylstyrene. In the following steps, it yields cyclohexanone, cyclohexanol, ammonium sulfate and, as its outcome, caprolactam – the important intermediate preceding nylon in our production.

All these high-purity chemicals and intermediates, from cumene all the way to caprolactam, are available to our customers and serve as excellent raw materials for a wide variety of industrial applications. Like our nylon polymers, the products strongly benefit from our high level of vertical integration and the fully quality control this gives us over the entire production pathway.

When sourcing from Domo, customers can not only trust in receiving exceptional quality with a low level of impurities but also a continuous supply with first-rate service.

Caprolactam and cyclohexanone

Caprolactam is a central element of Domo’s production and used by many of our customers for their own nylon polymerization. Its high purity is ensured by meticulous testing and compound-specific gas chromatography, and it is available both in liquid form and as flakes.

Our cyclohexanone is produced with a special palladium-based catalyst and advanced process technology that provides consistent high quality. It can be used as a precursor for caprolactam or other organic intermediates, as a solvent in many applications, as well as in the production of pesticides.

Cumene, phenol, acetone and alpha-methylstyrene

Obtained at the beginning of the caprolactam synthesis route, these high-purity intermediates and chemicals can be used to make plastics, solvents and a wide range of other useful products and compounds.

Our acetone is available both in a technical grade and one that complies with pharma requirements for use as excipient, and the outstanding quality of the cumene we produce is ensured by state-of-the-art technology based on zeolite catalysts. All products come with complete documentation and are shipped according the highest safety standards.

Ammonium sulfate

A valuable byproduct of caprolactam synthesis, this inorganic salt is mainly used as a fertilizer for crop production. We offer it in a naturally non-caking special grade ensuring wide dispersibility in the field, as well as in an industrial grade with anti-caking agent that can be used for many processes, from the production of experimental yeast cultures to making flame retardants.
