Cyclohexenon is a chemical of commercial importance. It can be easily converted to Cyclohexenon oxime which isa monomer for production of nylon-6. Attempt have there for made to produce Cyclohexenon at industrial scale. In the present work Cyclohexenol is oxidized with molecular oxygen over vanadium catalyst to Cyclohexenon in a fixed bed reactor. The catalyst was characterized with x-ray diffraction for its phase purity. The reaction parameters were optimizes to get maximum conversion of cyclohexenol and best selectivity of Cyclohexenon. The product was confirmed by producing its derivatives thus reaction of reaction method with, 2-4dinitrophenylhydrazine produced corresponding hydrazones, and reaction with hydroxylamine produced Cyclohexenon oxime.
