Determination of Optimum ReactionTemperature for Biodiesel%Yield from Rice bran Oil

C. Bharadwaj Kumar, Prof. G. Prabhakar

Abstract :

 The determination of optimum reaction temperature for biodiesel yield from oil was studied. The oil was transesterified using two catalysts sodium hydroxide (NaOH) &Potassium hydroxide (KOH) in methanol to obtain Rice an oil Methylester(biodiesel). For the optimum reaction temperature, the biodiesel production was carried out at three temperatures (55,65,750C) and at eight reaction times30, 60,90,120,150,180,210,240 min and catalyst weight kept constant (1.25 grams).From the experimental observations comparative investigation carried out for the two catalysts, at three temperatures (55,65,750C)and at eight reaction times(30, 60, 90,120,150,180,210,240 min).Optimum Temperature is obtained at 65&vbar; C, with KOH as catalyst at which maximum %Yield is obtained and is 95%, while agitator speed kept constant.
