Pore-expanded SBA-15 sulfonic acid silicas for biodiesel synthesis

Dacquin, Jean-Philippe, Lee, Adam Fraser, Pirez, Cyril and Wilson, Karen 2012. Pore-expanded SBA-15 sulfonic acid silicas for biodiesel synthesis. Chemical Communications 48 (2) , pp. 212-214. 10.1039/c1cc14563k

Here we present the first application of pore-expanded SBA-15 in heterogeneous catalysis. Pore expansion over the range 6–14 nm confers a striking activity enhancement towards fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) synthesis from triglycerides (TAG), and free fatty acid (FFA), attributed to improved mass transport and acid site accessibility.
