Abstract

Recently, mesostructured solid catalysts have been attracting attention for biodiesel synthesis owning to their remarkable characteristics, such as harmonized surface characteristic, large surface area, large and flexible pore size, specific crystallization, and high thermal stability. Principally, higher surface area can be obtained as a result of either porous creation or transforming bulk material to nanoparticles. The bigger pore diameters simplify the diffusion of the reactants into pore ...
