Photothermal characterization of biodiesel and petroleum diesel fuels—A review and perspective
Alternative fuels hold considerable promise as substitutes for petroleum diesel fuel. As such, biodiesel is a promising renewable fuel that has been developed and tested by a number of research
Environmental impact of combustion of ethanolic biodiesel/diesel blends from several feedstocks on the gas emission levels in the atmosphere
TLDR
Evaluated ethanolic biodiesel from several feedstocks and engine operational conditions and the effect of engine operating conditions and biodiesel content in the blends during their combustion on the exhaust emissions point to crambe and macaw as more environmentally sustainable feedstocks for biodiesel production because they generate less greenhouse gas emissions.
Thermal Lens Spectrometry: Still a Technique on the Horizon?
TLDR
Novel theories, instrumentation and their applications for high sample throughput for environmental, chemical and biomedical analysis, as well as thermal characterization and imaging, particularly in microspace, are presented.

Effects of residue and antioxidant on thermo-optical properties of biodiesel.
TLDR
The results showed that the residue of the biodiesel production influences the thermal diffusivity value, which indicates that TL spectrometry can be a useful methodology for certifying the quality of biodiesel during production.
Thermal lens spectroscopy for the differentiation of biodiesel-diesel blends.
TLDR
Thermal lens (TL) spectroscopy was applied to biofuels to test its potential to distinguish diesel from biodiesel in blended fuels and indicates that the mass diffusivity decreases 32% between diesel and the blend with 10% biodiesel added to the diesel.
Viscosity of Vegetable Oils and Biodiesel and Energy Generation
The present work describes an experimental investigation concerning the determination of viscosity behavior with shear rate and temperature of edible oils: canola; sunflower; corn; soybean and the no
Monitoring the Thermal Parameters of Different Edible Oils by Using Thermal Lens Spectrometry
Several vegetable edible oils (sunflower, canola, soya, and corn) were used to study the thermal diffusivity of edible oils. Thermal lens spectrometry (TLS) was applied to measure the thermal
