The selective hydrogenation of benzene to cyclohexene is of great industrial interest. It could be an easy and less expensive way to produce value-added products like cyclohexanol, caprolactam. In comparison to the process of Asahi Chemical Co. the use of an ionic liquid is a simplification of the reaction system.
