Effect of Crystallization Time on the Concentration of Unsaturated FAME
1 the purity of unsaturated FAME and the recovery of non-urea complexed FAME increased slightly (around 1%) as crystallization time prolonged from 2h to 3h then remained unchanged after crystallization time reached 6h.Saturated FAME like C16-0 and C18-0 content showed a slight decreasing tendency.
Effect of Urea-to-FAME Ratio on the Concentration of Unsaturated FAME
2b shows that the purity of unsaturated FAME in NUCF increased greatly to a value of more than 98% while the recovery of FAME in NUCF decreased dramatically from 80% to 48% as the ratio of urea to FAME rose from 0.5:1 to 1.5:1.
Effect of 95% Ethanol-to-FAME Ratio on the Concentration of Unsaturated FAME
