A continuous catalytic system for biodiesel production
Abstract A novel continuous fixed bed reactor process has been developed for the production of biodiesel using a metal oxide-based catalyst. Porous zirconia, titania and alumina micro-particulateExpand
Production of algae-based biodiesel using the continuous catalytic Mcgyan process.
The analysis showed that even though total lipids comprised upwards of 19% of algal dry weight the saponifiable lipids, and resulting biodiesel, comprised only 1% of dry weight, highlighting the need to determine the triacylglyceride and free fatty acid content when considering microalgae for biodiesel production.

Practice and theory of high temperature liquid chromatography.
Key developments that have made the application of HTLC a practical technique are reviewed and new developments in 2-D techniques that incorporate HTLC are drawn attention that offer an opportunity to vastly increase the usefulness of HPLC for the analysis of complex samples. Expand
Elevated-temperature ultrahigh-pressure liquid chromatography using very small polybutadiene-coated nonporous zirconia particles.
The effects of temperature and pressure on the separation of parabens were investigated and Polybutadiene-coated 1 microm nonporous zirconia particles were used and a column efficiency as high as 420,000 plates m(-1) was obtained. Expand
Continuous production of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural from simple and complex carbohydrates
The synthesis of biofuels and biopolymers from cellulosic feedstocks has been a focus of many renewable energy research groups primarily due to the desire to use inedible sources of biomass for theExpand
Separation of enantiomers on bovine serum albumin coated zirconia in reversed-phase liquid chromatography
SummaryZirconia is known to be one of the best materials for the chromatographic support due to its excellent chemical, thermal and mechanical stability. In this work we report preparation and use ofExpand
High performance biomolecule separations using zirconia-based ion-exchange phases
Silica- and polymer-based phases used for the separation of biomolecules have traditionally suffered from such limitations as substrate instability in alkali media and shrinking and swelling of theExpand
Peer Reviewed: Zirconia Stationary Phases for Extreme Separations
Composite materials surpass standard silicon and carbon for stability and robustness in complicated reversed-phase column applications.
High-performance anion exchange of small anions with polyethyleneimine-coated porous zirconia.
Flow studies, using nitrite as a probe solute, showed that both coating procedures produced packed columns with good mass-transfer properties, and PEI-coated zirconia showed a distinct elution sequence for organic anions when compared to bare zIRconia or silica-based phases. Expand
Synthesis of micron diameter polybutadiene-encapsulated non-porous zirconia particles for ultrahigh pressure liquid chromatography.
The encapsulated non-porous zirconia particles demonstrated excellent thermal stability in the separation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons at a temperature of 100 degrees C and a pressure of 1351 MPa. Expand
