Jatropha oil has good potential as the renewable energy as well as lubricant feedstock. Production of Jatropha oil based lubricant was performed via a twostep process; (i) the transesterification of Jatropha oil to produce Jatropha Methyl Ester (JME) and, (ii) transesterification of JME with trimethylolpropane (TMP) under the presence of alkaline based catalyst. Transesterification of Jatropha oil was carried out at 65◦C for 1 hour by using 1-2% NaOH as catalyst. While, the transesterification… CONTINUE READING
