Abstract

This study has successfully optimized the conversion of monoepoxide linoleic acid (MEOA) into biolubricant via oxirane ring opening reaction using oleic acid (OA) with p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA) as a catalyst. The four main factors were studied according to a D-optimal design at three levels. These factors were OA/MEOA ratio, PTSA/MEOA ratio, temperature and reaction time. This analysis evidenced the best operating conditions of the oxirane ring opening reaction performed at the following condition; OA/MEOA ratio of 0.30:1 (w/w), PTSA/MEOA ratio of 0.50:1 (w/w), reaction temperature at 110 °C and reaction time at 4.5 h, an optimum yield of 84.61% and OOC of 0.05%. This model results showed a good agreement with the predict value, demonstrating that this methodology may be useful for industrial process optimization.
