Abstract
Camelina and Crambe crops are potential sources for medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) from C8 to C14, which represent an important feedstock for specialty oleochemicals. Their oils can also find utilization as lubricants after conversion into esters, if appropriate viscosity is achieved with good fluidity at low temperatures, usually measured as pour point. While MCFA esters might have fluidity problems, cis-double bonds can reduce pour pt. [1] The most abundant fatty acid (FA) in Camelina oil is gondoic (i.e. 11-eicosenoic a.), while Crambe oil contains up to 60 % erucic a. (i.e. 13-docosenoic a.). Initially dibasic esters with MCFA and oleic a. were synthesized,...
