Kinetics of the formation of trans linoleic acid and trans linolenic acid were compared. Pilot plant-scale tests on canola oils were carried out to validate the laboratory-scale kinetic model of geometrical isomerization of polyunsaturated fatty acids described in our earlier publication. The reliability of the model was confirmed by statistical calculations. Formation of the individual trans linoleic and linolenic acids was studied, as well as the effect of the degree of isomerization on the… Expand
