GLOSSARY & ABBREVIATIONS

CHA

Cyclohexylammonium salt

back to overview

Cyclohexylamine, used as base for salt formation. The amino acid derivative is offered as cyclohexylammonium salt. Salts crystallize more readily than the free acid or they have to be generated as to obtain a shelf-stable product. Cyclohexylammonium salts are soluble in many organic solvents which facilitates liberation of the acid in a separate step or in situ.
