P-3-7 不均一系の触媒量低減にフォーカスした酢酸メチルによるバイオディーゼル製造

p. 258-259

Biodiesel is usually produced using methanol over alkali catalysts such as sodium methoxide. In this process, glycerol is by-produced and is not used as a fuel component. In the reaction using methyl acetate instead of methanol, all the products including by-products can be used as fuel. However, the reaction rate is negligibly low when conventional alkaline catalysts are used. In this study, it was shown that the reaction rate could be greatly improved by using a small amount of methanol even when conventional alkaline catalyst was used.
