Dr. Jennifer R. Dodson, Thays d C. M. Leite, Nathália S. Pontes, Dr. Bianca Peres Pinto and Prof. Claudio J. A. Mota Green Acetylation of Solketal and Glycerol Formal by Heterogeneous Acid Catalysts to Form a Biodiesel Fuel Additive ChemSusChem 7
One man's waste is another's treasure: Acetylated acetals from solketal and glycerol formal can act as useful additives for biodiesel from the upgrading of waste glycerol. A solventless, heterogeneously catalyzed route for the production of acetylated additives with high conversions and selectivities is described. Reaction variables are examined and explained in terms of reactivity, thermodynamics, and reaction mechanisms.
