1-Hexene is an organic compound with the formula C6H12. 1-Hexene is a colorless liquid. It is classified as a high olefin and is one of the industrially significant linear alpha olefins. C6 is mainly used as co-monomer of HAO-LLDPE and HDPE (high-density polyethylene). It may also be used as an intermediate to produce mercaptans, oxo alcohols, organic aluminum compounds, and synthetic fatty acids. 1-hexene is a critical component used to produce polyethylene, a plastic resin commonly converted into film, plastic pipe, milk jugs, detergent bottles, and food & beverage containers. 1-Hexene is commonly manufactured by general methods such as full-range processes through the oligomerization of ethylene and on-purpose technology.
