The Studies on the Esterification of Oleic Acid Using P2O5/CaCl2/Fe3O4 Composite Catalysts
P2O5/CaCl2/Fe3O4 composite catalysts for the esterification of oleic acid was proposed. Optimum conditions for the esterification of oleic acid to produce methyl ester of oleic acid were investigated which yielded a maximum conversion of oleic acid to the methyl ester. The variables were: 1) temperature and time of reaction; 2) amounts of catalyst and 3) ratio of alcohol to fatty acid.
