vegetable oils into biodiesel

Lipase-mediated conversion of vegetable oils into biodiesel using ethyl acetate as acyl acceptor [An article from: Bioresource Technology]An interesting alternative to diesel from mineral oils is biodiesel from vegetable oil. Biodiesel technology will become interesting once the supply of crude oil become more scarce. Ethyl acetate was explored as an acyl acceptor for immobilized lipase-catalyzed preparation of biodiesel from the crude oils of Jatropha curcas (jatropha), Pongamia pinnata (karanj) and Helianthus annuus (sunflower). The optimum reaction conditions for inter-esterification of the oils with ethyl acetate were 10% of Novozym-435 (immobilized Candida antarctica lipase B) based on oil weight, ethyl acetate to oil molar ratio of 11:1 and the reaction period of 12h at 50^oC.
