Industrial outlets for methylic esters of rapeseed
The program objective was the development of new lipids using the technique of transesterification of methylic esters from rapeseed and of glycerine products. From glycerine, the work has followed 2 themes. These are the synthesis of polyglycerols (hydrophile centres of emulsifiers being able to replace the ethoxylates in nonionic detergents) and the synthesis of halogen derivatives for use in surface applications. From the methylic ester, the research program was based on producing new lipids from reactions involving the olefinic fraction, or the carboxyl group.
