Palm kernel oil esters (PKOEs) were synthesized in our laboratory through enzymatic transesterification of palm kernel oil and oleyl alcohol using Lipozyme RM IM as the catalyst [25].
Optimization of esterification via the enzymatic route of reacting adipic acid and alcohols (oleyl alcohol, C18:l, and lauryl alcohol, C12:0) gave a high percentage yield of more than 90%.
