Description

In experiment C5.4.1.1, sodium methoxide is used to produce biodiesel from rapeseed oil. In this reaction, the rapeseed oil is first split into glycerine and fatty acids, and then esterified with methanol (transesterification) in a second step. The rapeseed acid-methylesters produced in this way represent the actual biodiesel.
