Cyclohexene hydration was investigated in a fixed-bed reactor with a micromixer. The results showed that the use of the micromixer increased the solubility of cyclohexene in the aqueous phase and thus promoted the reaction. The conversion of cyclohexene and selectivity for cyclohexanol reached 9% and 99%, respectively. The reaction time was shortened to 0.3 h.
