      Fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) produced from vegetable oils or animal fats by transesterification, or from the esterification of fatty acids, with methanol, is labeled as ‘‘Biodiesel”. Current industrial processes for ...
    • Mechanochemistry for a smart and sustainable biodiesel production under heterogeneous catalysis 

      Malpartida-García, Irene; Maireles-Torres, Pedro Jesús; Lair, Valentin; Halloumi, Samy; Thiel, Julien; [et al.] (2018-09-10)
      Fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) produced from vegetable oil by transesterification, labeled as ‘‘Biodiesel”, is industrially accomplished in the presence of a homogeneous basic catalyst, such as alkali hydroxide or methoxide ...
    • Valorisation of glycerol by new mechanochemical processes 

      Malpartida-García, Irene; Maireles-Torres, Pedro; Lair, Valentin; Halloumi, Samy; Thiel, Julien; [et al.] (2019-05-22)
      The search for new applications of glycerol, as a chemical platform from which a broad spectrum of new valuable derivatives can be obtained, is ongoing. In the present communication, a new mechano-chemical reactor is used ...
