This work was done to study microwave assisted transesterification of Pongamia pinnata seed oil carried out for the production of Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (FAME, biodiesel). The experiments were carried out using methyl alcohol and two different alkali catalysts i.e., potassium hydroxide (KOH) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH). The experiments were carried out at 1:6 oil/alcohol molar ratio and 60 EšC reaction temperature. The effect of catalyst concentration and reaction time on the yield and… CONTINUE READING
