Major disadvantages of these homogeneous catalysts are the lack of morphology control and reactor fouling.
Among them are sustainable hydrogen and/or syngas production: new approaches to reforming, in situ and operando measurement of catalysts at synchrotron X-ray and neutron sources, immobilizing homogeneous catalysts in metal-organic frameworks: methods and selected examples, precious metal catalysis for sustainable energy, and the life cycle assessment of emerging catalyst technologies: the case of polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells.
2008) and, as far as the authors are aware, no systematic studies have been carried out modifying reaction parameters to optimize this transesterification with homogeneous catalysts.
Biodiesel is mainly produced at an industrial level by transesterification reactions using basic homogeneous catalysts and discontinuous systems (Canakci, 2007; Balat, M.
EPDM rubber is commercially produced using homogeneous catalysts, viz.
However, for the production of biodiesel, various types of oils (as raw material), homogeneous catalysts (potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide, sulphuric acid and supercritical fluids), heterogeneous catalysts and enzyme (lipase) can be used (Marchetti et al.
Homogeneous catalysts are also growing in popularity owing to their unique features such as selectivity, high activity and varied application.
