Catalytic Esterification of Palm Fatty Acid Distillate to Produce Fatty Acid Methyl Ester

The esterification process produces biodiesel, commonly known as fatty acid methyl ester (FAME), a form of industrial and transportation fuel. In this work, a chromium-titanium mixed oxides catalyst generated by the sol-gel technique was used to catalyse the esterification of

Kinetic and Mechanistic Study of Oxidation of Chalcones by Morpholinium Chlorochromate with Oxalic Acid as Catalyst

In a 55 percent acetic acid-water (v/v) media, the kinetics of chalcone oxidation by morpholinium chlorochromate (MCC) were investigated. The reactions were carried out under pseudo-first-order conditions, with the substrate concentration constantly above MCC. The reaction had unit order dependence
