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 .
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%.
