Esterification is one of the most preferred synthesis routes for organic esters which are most frequently used as plasticizers, solvents and perfumery and flavour chemicals. The present work deals with acid catalyzed synthesis of isopropyl esters from palm fatty acid distillate (PFAD) in the presence of ultrasonic irradiations operating at 25kHz frequency and 1kW of supplied power. Effect of different operating parameters such as molar ratio of reactants, catalyst quantity and operating… CONTINUE READING
