The distribution of ethyl esters, triglycerides, diglycerides, monoglycerides, and glycerol between the ester and glycerol phase was investigated after the ethanolysis of rapeseed oil at various reaction conditions. The determination of these substances in the ester and glycerol phases was carried out by the GC method. The amount of ethyl esters in the(More)
The alkaline-catalyzed (KOH) ethanolysis of rapeseed oil with the help of a mechanical disperser was researched in this study. The effects of chosen reaction conditions (independent variables: the reaction temperature and time, the amount of catalyst, the molar ratio ethanol to oil and the rotation frequency of the disperser) on the ethanolysis process and(More)

Various effects on the separation of raw reaction mixture after the ethanolysis of rapeseed oil were investigated. Water addition, initial temperature of separation, centrifugation, ionic compound addition and time effects affecting concentrations of potassium, free glycerol and yield of the ester phase were found out. Centrifugation has the most positive(More)
The effects of phase separation temperatures (5-90°C) on losses of higher fatty acid (C(16) and C(18)) ethyl esters in the glycerol phase were investigated. Losses of ethyl esters produced from ethanolysis of rapeseed oil were 30-60% higher when NaOH rather than KOH was used as homogeneous catalyst. The losses decreased with an increase in separation(More)
In biodiesel production, glycerol is formed as a side product and it is contained in the glycerol phase. This phase contains (besides glycerol): water, soaps, alcohol, traces of catalyst and glycerides and the remaining esters. In this paper, a new method for the determination of esters in the glycerol phase is introduced. The determination enables the(More)
Many samples of rapeseed oil ethyl ester were prepared by alkaline-catalyzed transesterification at various conditions (reaction time, temperature, amount of catalyst, the molar ratio of ethanol to oil, the rotations of a disperser and the purification by water). The concentrations of the key impurities for biodiesel quality (the concentrations of(More)
