Table 4 Working conditions of catalysts used in transesterification

From: Lipase-catalyzed biodiesel production and quality with Jatropha curcas oil: exploring its potential for Central America

Catalyst % Catalyst % Water Molar ratio (Methanol:oil) Temperature (°C) Time (h)
NaOH 1 0 6:1 60 1
TL 0.75 2 1.5–1 35 24
CA 14 0 3:1 40 24
  1. Data refers to previously optimized working conditions for transesterification of Jatropha and palm oil with alkaline (NaOH) and enzymatic catalysts (TL, CA)
