  Caprolactam Degradation Pathway   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Caprolactam is most often synthesized from the benzene component of the BTEX production stream in petroleum processing.
In recent reports, strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa capable of utilizing Caprolactam as the sole source of carbon and nitrogen were readily isolated following enrichment of pond water, or activated sludge ( Steffensen and Alexander, 1995 ; Kulkarni and Kanekar, 1998).
Thus the ability to utilize Caprolactam seems to be widespread.

 Modelling of industrial electrolyte solutions
Since caprolactam is the monomer of Nylon 6, a high purity is required for the caprolactam.
For example, in the caprolactam recovering process, in the forward extraction step caprolactam is transferred from the aqueous solution with ammonium sulfate to the organic solvent, leaving most water soluble impurities in the aqueous phase.
In the backward extraction, caprolactam is transferred from the organic solvent to water, leaving the organic impurities in the organic solvent.

 The One that Got Away - The Chemistry of Nylon 6 Synthesis
Sodium hydride reacts with caprolactam by extracting the amide hydrogen, to produce the sodium salt, which is much more nucleophilic than the amide.
N -acetylcaprolactam is much more susceptible to this sort of reaction than caprolactam, because it is an imide, whereas caprolactam is an amide.
Also, if caprolactam underwent this first reaction step in place of N -acetylcaprolactam, the product would be a much less stable amine anion, as opposed to the more stable amide ion formed when N -acetylcaprolactam reacts.

Polymide 6 (PA) is produced through the polymerisation of e-amino caprolactam (Caprolactam), which is derived from oil, i.e., synthesised from a non-propagating raw material.
Ecological and also economic reasons have, therefore, favoured the development of a process for the recovery of caprolactam from used floor carpeting, which would otherwise be deposited in waste dumps or disposed of in household waste incineration plants.
