In the present work, the kinetics of oleic acid esterification with methanol has been studied by using an acid ion-exchange polymeric resin (Relite CFS) as the heterogeneous catalyst. The kinetics of the reaction has been studied by performing batch runs at different temperatures and in the presence of a certain amount of triglyceride for simulating an oil with a high content of free fatty acids, which is of great potential interest as a raw material in the biodiesel production process. The… CONTINUE READING
