Increased production of biodiesel has led to excess glycerol production worldwide, which has resulted in a significant drop in glycerol prices. Glycerol carbonate is a multifunctional compound used as chemical intermediates, solvents, additives and monomers. In this study, the enzymatic synthesis of glycerol carbonate from glycerol and a dialkyl carbonate was investigated. Glycerol carbonate was formed when reacting glycerol with dimethyl carbonate, diethyl carbonate or dibutyl carbonate in the… CONTINUE READING
