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

Environmentally Benign Un-Catalyzed Esterification of Alcohols under Solvent-Free Condition Using Acetyl Chloride: An Experimental Investigation| Chapter 3 | Recent Trends in Chemical and Material Sciences Vol.6

Under solvent-free and energy-efficient circumstances, a generic and practicable approach for un-catalyzed esterification of alcohols using acetyl chloride is disclosed. Nowadays, catalyst- and solvent-free processes are far more safe, nontoxic, ecologically friendly, and cost-effective. This approach is economical and environmentally

Deposition of Triterpenoids and Steroids in Cuticular Waxes of Representative Fruits of Rosaceae Family during Their Development and Maturation

Many chemical changes occur during fruit ripening, not only in the mesocarp but also in the epicarp, such as changes in triterpenoid and steroid content of fruit cuticular waxes, which can alter pathogen susceptibility and mechanical qualities of the fruit
