Abstract

Residual fibre oil was recovered from palm pressed fibre by using a solvent (hexane). The oil was analysed for its physical and chemical properties. The macro-nutrient and element contents of the pressed fibre were also analysed. The residualfibre oil contained high amounts of phosphorus (144 ppm), vitamin E (1153 ppm) and carotenes (1877 ppm). The compositional content of vitamin E present was 54.0% α-tocopherol, 19.2% α-tocotrienol, 16.7% γ-tocotrienol and 10.1% Δ-tocotrienol. The major fatty acids of the residual fibre oil zvere palmitic and oleic acid at 31.9% and 24.8%, respectively. The oil also contained a high amount of lauric acid (22.0%) which is the major fatty acid in palm kernel oil. Density of the residualfibre oil as afunction of temperature was measured at temperatures rangingfrom 40% to 75%. Density exhibited a linear relationship with temperature. Viscosity of the residual fibre oil was shown to decrease with an increase in temperature. The formation of needle-shaped crystals was observed zvhen the residual oil zvas cooled down from 36% to 34%. There were no significant changes in the macro-nutrient and element contents of the palm pressed fibre before and after oil extraction with hexane.
