Özet

The primary problems associated with the use of pure vegetable oils as fuels in compression ignition (Diesel) engines are caused by high fuel viscosity. Transesterification of the oil with short-chain alcohols (such as methanol or ethanol) to corresponding fatty esters is the most promising solution to the high-viscosity problem. In this work, the transesterification method was applied to crude safflower seed oil of Turkish origin using methanol. The variables affecting the monoester yield, such as:
