Transesterification of Camelina sativa Oil using Supercritical and Subcritical Methanol with Cosolvents – P.D. Patil, V.G. Gude, and S. Deng – Energy Fuels 2010

Summary: Transesterification of camelina oil using supercritical methanol with hexane as a cosolvent and subcritical methanol along with potassium hydroxide as a cosolvent/catalyst was investigated to study the methyl ester conversion process. Fuel properties of the biodiesel produced are comparable to those of regular diesel and conform to the ASTM standards. Link: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/ef900854h?journalCode=enfuem
