1. Solvent: n-hexane is a non-polar solvent with good solubility and fluidity. It can dissolve many lipids, oils, adhesives, resins and rubber and other organic matter. Therefore, n-hexane is often used as a solvent in paints, inks, glues, rubber products and tapes.

2. Chemical synthesis: n-hexane is a common reaction solvent and intermediate in organic synthesis. It can be used as a solvent in hydrogenation, alkylation and extraction reactions. In addition, it can also be used as a synthetic raw material of basic chemicals for the preparation of other compounds, such as alcohols, ketones, aldehydes and acids.

3. Cleaning agent: Because chemical n-hexane has good solubility and volatility, it can be used as an ingredient in cleaning agents and detergents. It can quickly remove oil and color stains, suitable for industrial cleaning, metal surface cleaning and mechanical parts cleaning and other occasions.

4. Laboratory application: n-hexane is one of the non-polar solvents commonly used in the laboratory. Due to its low polarity and high volatility, it can be used in chemical analysis, dissolution reactions, and extraction experiments. N-hexane can also be used for cleaning and maintenance of certain laboratory instruments.
