  • Six Cyanobacterial and fifteen other algal taxa from Sundarban mangrove forest of South East Asia have been analyzed for total lipid estimation and fatty acid profiling to search for a suitable feedstock for algal biodiesel production. Total lipid content varied from 7 – 23 % for the studied genera. GCMS analysis revealed that Palmitic (16:0) and Oleic (18:1) as major fatty acids from the taxa collected from freshwater, brackish water and marine habitat of Sundarban with variable salinity (0… CONTINUE READING
