Hexamine, Methenamine, Urotropine; 1,3,5,7- tetraazaadamantane, Formin, Aminoform
Hexamine is a heterocyclic organic compound with the formula (CH2)6N4. This white crystalline compound is highly soluble in water and polar organic solvents. It has a cage-like structure similar to adamantane. It is useful in the synthesis of other chemical compounds, e.g., plastics, pharmaceuticals, rubber additives. It sublimes in vacuum at 280 °C.
Gas phase method of hexamine has short processing line with less side reactions. High purified products are received in this process. Recover excess ammonia gas and methanol can eliminate environmental pollution and decrease consumption. Heat energy is comprehensively utilized; production is continuously run with high automation.
