Hexane is a volatile solvent that contains six carbons in a straight chain and has the chemical formula C6H14. It can cause severe damage to the peripheral nervous system, producing death of the long myelinated nerves (distal axonopathy). This condition results in an inability to walk, loss of muscle mass in all limbs, and sometimes loss of bowel and bladder control. This injury occurs because hexane is metabolized to a gamma-diketone. Another solvent subject to abuse that undergoes the same change in the body is methylbutylketone.
