Synthesis and Physical Properties of Potential Biolubricants based on Ricinoleic Acid

Yao, Linxing; Hammond, Earl G; Wang, Tong; Bhuyan, Satyam; Sundararajan, Sriram


The desire to replace petroleum-based materials with environmentally friendly and sustainable alternatives has stimulated the development of vegetable oil-based materials as biolubricants. Our studies have focused on molecules that might be produced by biosynthesis of genetically altered oilseed plants with limited post-harvest modification. Various ricinoleate and 12-hydroxystearate esters and estolides were synthesized and their melting points and viscosities were documented. The antifriction...[Show more]
