Sample text

Need for specific application, several ester derivatives have been obtained from vegetable oils. For example, fatty acid monoglycerides and diglycerides are obtained by glycerinolysis of triglycerides with an excess of glycerol at temperatures of 200–250°C in the presence of base catalysts, such as KOH or Ca(OH)2 under an inert gas atmosphere [20]. The final products are usually mixture of 35– 60% of monoglycerides and 35–50% of diglycerides. The separation can be achieved by distillation due to different emulsifying ability, but it is very expensive.
