Determination of vapor pressure and oxidative stability of biogenic esters
Keywords and Phrases
"The growing threat to Environment due to excess use of mineral oils, their limitedness and conflicts over their resources, have initiated the incentive for the search of alternative sources of energy, which are cleaner, environmentally friendly and available in abundance. One of the most suitable alternatives to this is the use of biogenic oils, which possess similar properties to that of mineral oils and environmentally benign. The principal sources of biogenic oils are vegetable and animal fats. Soy and canola oil are the main source of biogenic soils in USA...This work focused on the measurement of some of the physical chemical properties - oxidative and thermal stability and vapor pressure of twenty different oils so as to find out the most suitable one"--Abstract, leaf iii.
