Abstract
Biodiesel is considered an excellent alternative to diesel derived from fossil sources, due to its renewable nature, which minimizes environmental impacts. In this research, several parameters were analyzed, such as the oil content of seeds, acidity and saponification indexes for oil extracted from different plant species, and qualitative analysis for the verification of free fatty acids in the biodiesel composition by thin layer chromatography (TLC). Four cultivars were evaluated for each specie: canola, sunflower, corn and soybean. Oil samples were submitted to the transesterification process for the production of biodiesel. The data were submitted to ANOVA an...
