Transesterification of Annona squamosa (Custard apple) seed oil using montmorilloniteK-10 as catalyst and characterization of the fatty acid methyl ester


Author(s): Manoj Sarma

Abstract: Organic transformations using environmentally benign catalysts are always getting enormous attention from the chemists. An important family of catalysts that has received considerable attention of the synthetic chemist in recent times is derived from the soil, the most noteworthy ones being clays and zeolites. In this study MontmorilloniteK-10 clay has been used as catalyst for transesterification of Annona squamosa (Custard apple) seed Oil. The synthesized product has been characterized by FT-IR, NMR and GC-MS to experiment the viability of the oil as an alternative source of biodiesel.
