Volume 12, Issue 1 , March 2021, , Pages 34-44

  The transesterification of Amygdalus scoparia oil to biodiesel was performed and examined through the electrolysis method in the presence of KOH/Al2O3 as a heterogeneous catalyst at room temperature. A KOH/Al2O3 as solid base catalyst was prepared through the impregnation of Al2O3 with KOH solution (concentration ...  Read More

  In this paper, HZSM5 zeolite was synthesized through reflux method on support material CaO (25, 35 and 45 wt%) in two specific methods: microwave and impregnation at high temperature. The zeolite catalyst was modified with impregnation of NaOH (2, 4, 8, 12 wt%) at room temperature. The modified zeolite ...  Read More

  Biofuel, a renewable energy is mainly produced by transesterification of fatty acids either in presence of enzyme or catalysts. The transesterification relies on the use of either strong base or strong acid homogeneous catalysts for effective performance; but, homogeneous catalysts are associated with ...  Read More
