Caprolactam is a crystalline cyclic amide with a clear to milky white appearance. It smells soft, yet it is quite unpleasant.

Water, oxygenated solvents, chlorinated solvents, as well as certain hydrocarbons, all have a high solubility for it. Its molecular weight is 113.16 g/mol and its chemical formula is C6H11NO. The main purpose of caprolactam is to make synthetic fibres.

It has a 70 °C melting temperature. Due to its toxicity, contact can cause irritation and burns to the skin, mucous membranes, eyes, nose, and throat.

By using phenol, caprolactam is created. Cyclohexanone is produced by hydrogenating phenol, and after that, hydroxylamine is used to transform it into cyclohexane oxime. This molecule undergoes a Beckmann rearrangement in the presence of sulfuric acid to create caprolactam. 90% of caprolactam is created using this procedure.

The two largest producers of caprolactam are India and China.
