Continuous Production of Bioderived esters via Supercritical Solvent Processing Using Solid Heterogeneous Catalysts

Abstract: 

A method for the continuous production of ester based organic compounds from renewable natural products via supercritical solvent processing in the presence of heterogeneous nano-structured catalysts. Fatty acid triglycerides may therefore be transesterified using heterogeneous nano-structured catalysts in the presence of supercritical alcohols to provide alkyl ester compounds and glycerine.
