Paper Title:
Ignition Quality of Biodiesel from Cottonseed and Soybean Oil
  Abstract

The thermal analysis has been employed to yield information on the biodiesel ignition quality since the ignition quality influences the combustion and exhaust emissions of the fuels in a compression ignition (CI) engine. The chemical compositions of -10 petrodiesel (-10PD), soybean-based biodiesel (SME) and cottonseed-based biodiesel (CME) are analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Ignition temperature of -10PD, SME and CME is determined by thermogravimetry-differential scanning calorimetry (TG-DSC). The study shows that the biodiesel is mainly composed of fatty acid methyl esters: C14:0–C24:0, C16:1–C22:1, C18:2 and C18:3. Biodiesel ignition quality is better than petrodiesel. The ignition temperature of CME and SME is 207.4 and 213.9 °C respectively. The ignition quality of biodiesel is better with shorter carbon chain lengths and more saturated fatty acid methyl ester (SFAME).
