Dataset on Acido-biocatalysis of Agro Solid Wastes in Acidic Medium for the Conversion of Pink Solo Carica papaya Seed oil to Biodiesel Fuel
Brief supplementary data on the above topic
Steps to reproduce
The oil was preheated at temperature of 80 oC for 60 min in a biodiesel reactor, acidified catalyst was weighed and added to a know volume of ethanol, and the mixture was stirred to achieved ethanol-catalyst mixture [14-15]. The mixed ethanol-catalyst was added to preheated oil in the reactor, and the reaction was monitored at 70 oC for a known time. At the reaction completion, the product was allowed to stand in a separating funnel for 48 h to allow the gravity settling. At the end of 48 h, three layers were observed: the ethanol thin layer, the biodiesel thick layer, and the glycerol-catalyst layer [16-17]. The layer was fractionally separated by removing glycerol-catalyst layers from the bottom of separating funnel, and the ethanol-biodiesel layers were washed with distilled water, dried over magnesium sulfate, and then filtered to obtained pure diesel.
