    CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1. Introduction Caprolactam (CPL) is an organic compound with the formula (CH2)5C(O)NH. This colourless solid is a lactam or a cyclic amide of caproic acid. Caprolactam was first described in the late 1800s by Gabriel and Mass, when it was prepared by the cyclization of ε-aminocaproic acid, the product of the hydrolysis of caprolactam. In the months after Schlack’s discovery the first stocking were produced from Perlon. All the Perlon produced went to the war effort.…

    making it no longer an addition reaction, but an electrophilic substitution (Structure of Benzene, 2001). An electrophilic substitution consist of the aromatic compound that undergoes a substitution, which is generally the replacement of a hydrogen ion, with an electrophilic compound, which is a compound that is electron poor (Hunt, 2015). A pair of electrons from one of the double bonds in the aromatic grabs on to the electrophile to form a carbocation, resonance occurs, and then a hydrogen is…
