Abstract
The discovery of alternative solid base catalysts to replace homogeneous catalysts currently used in the industrial synthesis of biodiesel could remove the need for atom and energy inefficient routes to the desired biofuel product, and allow for the possibility of a continuous production process.\ud Hydrotalcites have shown promise as catalysts in the transesterification of triglycerides with methanol to form biodiesel; however their activity is hampered by slow diffusion of the bulky triglycerides through the microporous hydrotalcite structure and poor accessibility of the active sites. This thesis has examined the synthesis of hydrotalcites via novel routes in...
