Cyclohexylacetone (acetonylcyclohexane) is an organic compound. Cyclohexylacetone is closely related to phenylacetone being phenylacetone with the benzene ring replaced with a cyclohexane ring. Similarly to phenylacetone's synthesis, cyclohexylacetone can be prepared by a variant of the Friedel-Crafts reaction (the Darzens–Nenitzescu Synthesis of Ketones) by reacting cyclohexane with chloroacetone.
Another cyclohexylacetone use is in the production of droprenilamine.
