Abstract

Oil was extracted from toxic seeds of a shrub, Jatropha Curcas, in high yields, up to 41% by weight. Jatropha oil was converted in a laboratory reactor to biodiesel by transesterification. Analysis of Jatropha oil and Jatropha biodiesel by GC/MS, NMR, and GC/SIMDIS showed that Jatropha oil could be readily converted to a biodiesel product through NaOH catalyzed transesterification. The resulting biodiesel fuel has desirable properties such as high cetane number compared to commercial biodiesel fuels from soybean oil and petroleum diesel.
