A sodium methoxide solution was prepared by dissolving metallic sodium, supplied by Merck (Darmstadt, Germany), in methanol to a final concentration of 5 mg/mL.
The heated oil is poured into a separate container and then the Sodium Methoxide solution is mixed along with the heated oil.
The formulation optimized by the experimental design was transesterified with sodium methoxide and sodium hydroxide to evaluate whether the reaction mechanism by different catalysts affected the characteristics of biodiesel.
The resulting resin-bound PMM-peptide conjugate 5 was treated with 0.5 M sodium methoxide in MeOH and repeatedly washed with a sodium-complexing solution to remove O-acetyl groups [20].
In search of better results in terms of yield, reaction time, and easy workup, MCR approach (Scheme 1) had been employed for the synthesis of tetrahydrocarbazole based 1,2-diazoles 4-6(a-o) where l(a-c), 2(a-e), and 3(a-c) in alkaline medium using 20 mol% sodium methoxide in methanol were stirred together (Table 1).
The addition of organic salts [20] (e.g., BPA disodium salt or sodium methoxide) and organic solvents (e.g., acetone or alcohols [21]) is well known to induce crystallization.
The researchers extracted lipids in milk using chloroform-methanol and methylated techniques with sodium methoxide. Fatty acid methyl esters were extracted with iso-octane.
The compared result reflects the Jatropha biolubricant using Paphiaundalata shell waste (2.2kJ/mol)) slightly higher than sodium methoxide (1.65kJ/mol [11].
Explaining the project the girls commented,"Our project is based on synthesis of bio-diesel in addition to Glycerol by chemically treating the waste oil with sodium methoxide,"
Fatty acid methyl esters were derivatised using 0.5 N sodium methoxide. About 0.5 g of the oil was weighed in a stoppered flask and 0.5 N sodium methoxide was added (7-8 mL).
