1. Production of Bio-Gasoline with High Octane Number, as a Renewable Transportation Biofuel, via Thermochemical Conversion of Castor Oil

R. Parvizsedghy; M. Alibolandi; S. M. Sadrameli

Volume 17, Issue 3 , Summer 2020, , Pages 3-23


  Vegetable oils are proved as valuable feedstocks in the biofuel production. Some common issues of cracking of vegetable oils–as an effective method for the biofuel production- are related to the glycerol decomposition during the cracking process. Transesterification, which can remove glycerol from ...  Read More

2. Biodiesel production from soybean oil using ionic liquid as a catalyst in a microreactor

F. Mohammadi; M. Rahimi; A. Parvareh; M. Feyzi

Volume 15, Issue 1 , Winter 2018, , Pages 102-114

  In the present study, Choline hydroxide (ChOH) as an ionic liquid catalyst was used for transesterification of soybean oil into biodiesel in a microchannel reactor. The effects of three variables i.e. reaction temperature, catalyst dosage and total flow rate on fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) content ...  Read More

3. Ultrasound-Assisted Biodiesel Production in microreactors

M. Basiri; M. Rahimi; H. Babaei Mohammadi

Volume 13, Issue 2 , Spring 2016, , Pages 22-32

  The ultrasound-assisted (UA) soybean oil methanolysis using KOH as a catalyst was studied at different reaction conditions in a microreactor. Box–Behnken experimental design, with three variables, was performed and the effects of three reaction variables i.e. reaction temperature, catalyst concentration ...  Read More

4. Investigation of Liquid–Liquid Two-Phase Flow Pattern in Microreactors for Biodiesel Production

M. Basiri; M. Rahimi; F. Mohammadi

Volume 12, Issue 3 , Summer 2015, , Pages 32-40

  "> In the present study, transesterification of soybean oil to Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME) was carried out in the microreactor. The system performance was investigated in the presence of hexane as a cosolvent. Furthermore, the effect of number of micromixer’s inlets on the mixing was one ...  Read More
