Catalytic Esterification of Palm Fatty Acid Distillate to Produce Fatty Acid Methyl Ester

The esterification process produces biodiesel, commonly known as fatty acid methyl ester (FAME), a form of industrial and transportation fuel. In this work, a chromium-titanium mixed oxides catalyst generated by the sol-gel technique was used to catalyse the esterification of palm fatty acid distillate (PFAD) to yield FAME. A batch reactor was used to carry…

Analysis of Chemical Signatures in ModeratelyThermophilic Bacteria

The analysis of fatty acids methyl esters as biochemical markers have been used in the identification of bacteria. A total of 18 out of 44 moderately thermophlic bacteria isolated from water samples of the Coramandal Coast, Chennai, Tamilnadu, were analyzed for Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME). The present study showed that the predominant fatty acid…
