    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.
