This paper presents mathematical modeling and simulation results for the cyclohexane oxidation in a series of stirred tank reactors. Cyclohexane oxidation is a complex reaction where the main two products, i.e. cyclohexanol and cyclohexanon are the intermediate products and further reaction will lead to the formation of some unwanted products. The selectivity of the desired products is usually poor if the conversion is high. Hence the effect of several operating variables including the number of reactors in series arrangement should be considered in the process design. In this work the model for cyclohexane oxidation in a series of stirred tank reactors was developed and therefore the steady state performances of the process are possible to be evaluated. The results are particularly useful for the decision making in the number of reactors to be used.
