URIOSTE, Daniele; CASTRO, Matheus B. A.; BIAGGIO, Francisco C.  and  CASTRO, Heizir F. de. Synthesis of chromatographic standards and establishment of a method for the quantification of the fatty ester composition of biodiesel from babassu oil. Quím. Nova [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.2, pp.407-412. ISSN 0100-4042.

Several alkyl esters were synthesized, purified, characterized by 1H NMR and employed as standards for establishing chromatographic methods to monitor their formation in the synthesis of biodiesel. The efficiency of the chromatographic methods was confirmed with the products of enzymatic transesterification of babassu oil with different alcohols (C2 to C4), using Lipozyme as catalyst.

Keywords : biodiesel; chromatographic standards; babassu oil.
