Lipase-Catalyzed Alcoholysis of Crambe Oil and Camelina Oil for the Preparation of Long-Chain Esters – G. Steinke, R. Kirchhoff, and K.D. Mukherjee – JOACS 2000

Summary: Crambe and camelina oil were transesterified with oleyl alcohol, the alcohols derived from crambe and camelina oils, n-octanol or isopropanol using Novozym 435 (immobilized lipase B from Candida antarctica), Lipozyme IM (immobilized lipase from Rhizomucor miehei), and papaya (Carica papaya) latex lipase as biocatalysts.
