New Disease-resistant Castor Seeds to be Released Soon

Scientists at zonal agricultural and horticultural research station of the University castor seedsat Hiriyur have developed a disease resistant and high yield variety of castor seed called HCH-6 (Hybrid Castor Hiriyur) which is a fusion of DPC-9 and TMV-6 varieties.

The yield of the variety is said to be around 18 quintals per hectare while it is around 13-14 quintals per hectare in other existing varieties.

Pure Polyurethane and Castor Oil Based Polyurethane: Synthesis and Characterization

Scientists from Malaysia performed an experiment to compare the physico-chemical properties of high performance polyurethane prepared using pure poly propylene glycol (PPG) and that prepared from PPG and castor oil.castor oil polyurethane

Characterization studies indicated the presence of large -CH stretching in castor oil mixed polyurethane with larger oxidative thermal stability over pure PPG polyurethane. The tensile properties were found to be almost comparable showing that mixed polymers can be used in future to overcome environmental and economic crisis.

Kinetic Modelling of Enzymatic Biodiesel Production from Castor Oil: Temperature Dependence of the Ping Pong Parameters

Scientists performed an experiment to understand the kinetics of transesterification of castor oil using Novozym 235. The genetic algorithm was employed for estimation of kinetic parameters in the Ping Pong kinetic model for castor oil biodieseldifferent temperatures.

Results showed that an acceptable agreement with experimental data was observed when biodiesel yields were predicted using temperature dependent parameters.

Chinese Scientists to Transform Castor Oil into Jet Fuel

Researchers from China have announced the possibility of making jet fuel from castor oil castor oiland are aiming to produce tens of thousands of tons next year.

The team has made one ton of fuel with less than 1.3 tons of castor oil at a cost of less than $23,400. Their research results have been published in the International Journal Bio resource Technology.

Synthesis and Characterization of Castor Oil Based Hybrid Polymers and Their Polyurethane-Urea/Silica Coatings

Scientists performed an experiment to synthesize castor oil based hybrid polymers castor oil polyurethaneand their polyurethane urea-silica coatings. New acrylated alkoxysilane castor oil (AASCO) with hydrolysable –Si–OCH3 was synthesized from CO, maleic anhydride and 3-(Trimethoxysilyl) propyl methacrylate via free radical copolymerization method.

Characterization studies showed that castor oil modified silane based hybrid coatings had better mechanical, viscoelastic properties.
