monoglyceride

[¦män·ō′glis·ə‚rīd]
(organic chemistry)
Any of the fatty-acid glycerol esters where only one acid group is attached to the glycerol group, for example, RCOOCH2CHOHCH2OH; examples are glycerol monostearate and monolaurate; used as emulsifiers in cosmetics and lubricants.

Another reason is related to free fatty acids, monoglycerides, and diglycerides which are in trace components of biodiesel (Tables 2 and 3).

Even though, this study did not determine the fatty acid content, it can be replaced by crude fat, as it is also known as the ether extract or the free lipid content, the lipid materials may include triglycerides, diglycerides, monoglycerides, phospholipids, steroids, and free fatty acids (Association of American Feed Control Officials [AAFCO], 2014).

HVCO in this study did not show its antibacterial ability although it might contain monoglyceride. This could be explained that, in this study, HVCO only contained a small amount of monoglyceride, so it did not have much enough to inhibit bacteria.
The specific JME fuel properties that include density at 15[degrees]C, calorific value, flash point, cetane value, specific gravity at 15[degrees]C, viscosity at 40[degrees]C, water content, ash content, acid value, monoglyceride, diglyceride, triglyceride, free glycerine, total ester content, and total glycerine contents were evaluated with a fuel property testing equipment built on the ASTM standards (D2624, D3828) and European standards (EN 14105) such as calorimeter, fuel test kit, and gas chromatograph (Shimadzu-GC-2010 Plus) fitted with a flame ionization detector FID2010 Plus and a capillary column of size 30 m x 0.25 mm x 0.25 [micro]m.
