The oxidation of p-xylene to terephthalic acid (TA) is a significant chemical process of purified TA production. Variation of operation conditions of the reaction directly affects the quality of TA. In this paper a fuzzy adaptive immune algorithm (FAIA) was proposed to realize the operation condition optimization of the p-xylene oxidation reaction. In FAIA, a chaotic hypermutation was developed to strengthen the searching ability of the algorithm, and a new immune network regulatory strategy was devised to maintain population adversity. Furthermore, two fuzzy logic modules were constructed to adjust parameters, further increasing the adaptability of the algorithm. The data of function optimization show that FAIA can quickly converge to the global optimum and overcome premature problems. Optimization results of process variable values of the p-xylene oxidation reaction indicate that the application of FAIA in an oxidation reaction process can greatly save the time of operation condition selection and reduce production cost.
