    The epoxidized ricinoleic acid methyl ester (RAME) have great potential to be used as biolubricants, biobased polymers, and surface-active compounds in a variety of industries. RAME is epoxidized using an environmentally friendly oxidant (hydrogen peroxide) and a phase-transfer catalyst ([p-C5H5N(CH2)15CH3]3[PW4O16]) in dichloroethane. The high conversion (94.52%) is achieved by using response surface methodology to optimize the epoxidation reaction variables.

  3. Production of chemicals from microalgae lipids – status and perspectives

    Microalgae oil lipids are discussed as an alternative source for chemicals. The tuning of lipid production in microalgae via genetic engineering and cultivation optimization for this purpose is reviewed. We further illuminate the bottlenecks of upscaling and the state of the art in industrial algae production by means of three concrete case studies. We give insights into the catalytic functionalization to high-value products.

    Novel structured triacylglycerols (TAGs) and diacylglyceryl ethers (DAGEs), constituting EPA and DHA as the sole fatty acids, were obtained by a two-step chemoenzymatic synthesis comprised of an exclusive incorporation of EPA or DHA, activated as acetoxime esters, into the terminal positions of glycerol and 1-O-alkyl-sn-glycerols by use of immobilized Candida antarctica lipase, and a subsequent introduction of a second PUFA acyl group to the remaining 2-positions by EDCI coupling agent.
