Iranian Engineers Develop Bio Refinery for Castor without Need for Fossil-Based Methanol

Scientists from Iran have developed a new method to produce biodiesel from castcastor oil biodieselor oil without using extra petrochemical methanol. The new method uses bio refinery setup where bioethanol is used instead of fossil-based methanol to produce biodiesel.

Results showed that the optimum biodiesel yield was 85% achieved at a temperature of 62.5°C with an ethanol: oil ratio of 0.29:1.

Synthesis and Characterization of Castor Oil-based Polyurethane for Potential Application as Host in Polymer Electrolytes

Researchers from Malaysia conducted an experiment to synthesize castor oil based polyurethane and analyse its potential application as a base material in polymer castor oil polyurethaneelectrolytes. Castor oil polyols were synthesized and mixed with 4,4′-diphenylmethane diisocyanate to synthesize the desired biobased polyurethane.

Characteristic studies showed that the synthesized polyurethane had favourable properties and hence could be used as a base material in polymer electrolytes.

Newly Synthesized Bolaamphiphiles from Castor Oil and their Aggregated Morphologies for Potential Use in Drug Delivery

Researchers from Israel performed an experiment to synthesize bolaamphiphiles frombolaamphiphilic cpds castor oil to be used as potential drug delivery systems. Two classes of symmetric and asymmetric bolaamphiphiles with acetyl choline head groups were synthesized and characterized.

Results showed that these compounds self-assembled in aqueous media to form stable cationic nano-sized vesicles which can used as potential drug delivery systems.

Versatile Post-Polymerization Modifications of a Functional Polyester from Castor Oil

Researchers from Spain performed an experiment to analyse post-polymerization modifications of a functional polyester derived from castor oil. castor oilThe aliphatic functional polyester was obtained by enzymatic polycondensation of dimethyl 2,9-dibromosebacate and 1,10-decanediol derived from castor oil.

Results showed that the alkyl halide functionality reacted with thiols, amines and carboxylic acid under mild conditions showing high modification degrees.
