GLRPPR Sector Resource: Characterization of Biodiesel Oxidation and Oxidation Products: Task 1 Results: Technical Literature Review

Title:
Characterization of Biodiesel Oxidation and Oxidation Products: Task 1 Results: Technical Literature Review

Abstract:
Technical information pertaining to fatty oil and fatty ester stability chemistry is reviewed. Over 130 references within the open scientific literature are discussed in detail. This review is divided into five major technical sections, followed by conclusions, and a list of the cited references. Two appendices with additional information are also included. The five major technical sections are as follows: STABILITY CHEMISTRY FUNDAMENTALS; TEST METHODOLOGY RELATING TO STABILITY; STABILITY-RELATED BEHAVIOR; ANTIOXIDANTS USED IN FATTY OILS AND ESTERS; IMPACT ON DIESEL ENGINE EQUIPMENT. Each of these five technical sections is further divided into sub-sections according to topic. The conclusions are not a condensed re-iteration of the most salient technical points. Instead, they are specifically written to address where the state of the art of biodiesel science and technology is, where the gaps are, and the general approach that is needed to fill those gaps.
