Cyclopentanol is an important fine chemical intermediate for medicine and pesticide,which has extensive application. The preparation routes of cyclopentanol include adipic acid method,cyclopentene method and cyclopentane method based on the raw materials,which each have advantages and disadvantages. Technical comparisons were made among the above methods. It was concluded that cyclopentane oxidation method would be a direction for preparation of cyclopentanol due to its superiority in raw material price,environmentally friendly catalyst system and process.
