Alternatives to Petroleum Diesel Fuel
Abstract There are four alternative fuels that can be relatively easily used in conventional compression ignition engines (CIE): vegetable oil, biodiesel, Fischer-Tropsch (F-T) diesel, and dimethyl
Alternative Diesel Fuels from Vegetable Oils and Animal Fats
Publisher Summary This chapter reviews competing technologies for converting vegetable oils and animal fats into diesel fuel besides biodiesel. Aside from transesterification to produce biodiesel,
Production of Biodiesel from Vegetable Oils: A Survey
Abstract The purpose of this work is to investigate biodiesel production processes from vegetable oils. Biodiesel fuel can be made from new or used vegetable oils and animal fats, which are
Fuel quality assessment of ethyl esters produced from vegetable oils and their blends with petroleum diesel.
Ethanolysis of four different vegetable oils (sunflower, soybean, cotton seed, and used frying oil) was studied using sodium ethoxide as a catalyst. The ester preparation involved a two-step
BIODIESEL FUEL OBTAINED FROM SUNFLOWER OIL AS AN ALTERNATIVE FUEL FOR DIESEL ENGINES
In this study, an alternative diesel fuel, of which chemical modification was made by transesterification with short chain methyl alcohols, was produced from sunflower oil, a designated as B100. The

Variables affecting the yields of fatty esters from transesterified vegetable oils
Transesterification reaction variables that affect yield and purity of the product esters from cottonseed, peanut, soybean and sunflower oils include molar ratio of alcohol to vegetable oil, type of
TRIGLYCERIDE/AQUEOUS ETHANOL/1-BUTANOL MICROEMULSIONS
ABSTRACT Triglyceride/aqueous ethanol/1-butanol systems were studied by rheology, ultracentrifugation, conductivity, refractive index and density determinations to support the concept that 1-butanol
Pyrolysis of tropical vegetable oils.
Pyrolysis products of babassu (Orbignya martiana), piqui (Caryocar coriaceum), and palm oils (Elaeis guineensis) were analyzed by GC/MS using library search programs. The chief products of pyrolysis
TRIGLYCERIDE–METHANOL MICROEMULSIONS
ABSTRACT Even-numbered 1-alkanols from butanol to tetradecanol were evaluated for solubilizing and microemulsifying methanol in triolein and for their effectiveness on water tolerances of the hybrid
The viscosity of suspensions of rigid spheres
An explanation is given of the dependence of the relative viscosity on the size distribution of the suspended spheres, an effect recently observed by Ward and Whitmore.(1) It is shown theoretically
