    • Combining AlCl3·6H2O and an ionic liquid to prepare chlorohydrin esters from glycerol 

      Villorbina Noguera, Gemma; Tomàs, Albert; Escribà i Gelonch, Marc; Oromí Farrús, Mireia; Eras i Joli, Jordi; Balcells Fluvià, Mercè; Canela i Garayoa, Ramon (Elsevier, 2009)
      We describe here the first example in which glycerol has been transformed into chlorohydrin esters using an ionic liquid and hydrated aluminium chloride. The method avoids using Crown-18 ether, which was needed to obtain ...
    • From symmetric glycerol derivatives to dissymmetric chlorohydrins 

      Solarte Orozco, Carmen Eugenia; Escribà i Gelonch, Marc; Eras i Joli, Jordi; Villorbina Noguera, Gemma; Canela i Garayoa, Ramon; Balcells Fluvià, Mercè (Molecular Diversity Preservation International, 2011)
      The anticipated worldwide increase in biodiesel production will result in an accumulation of glycerol for which there are insufficient conventional uses. The surplus of this by-product has increased rapidly during the last ...
    • Preparation and uses of chlorinated glycerol derivatives 

      Canela Xandri, Anna; Balcells Fluvià, Mercè; Villorbina Noguera, Gemma; Christou, Paul; Canela i Garayoa, Ramon (MDPI, 2020-05-28)
      Crude glycerol (C3H8O3) is a major by-product of biodiesel production from vegetable oils and animal fats. The increased biodiesel production in the last two decades has forced glycerol production up and prices down. ...
    • Use of crude glycerol from biodiesel producers and fatty materials to prepare allyl esters 

      Escribà i Gelonch, Marc; Eras i Joli, Jordi; Villorbina Noguera, Gemma; Balcells Fluvià, Mercè; Blanch, C.; Barniol, N.; Canela i Garayoa, Ramon (Springer Verlag, 2011)
      Vegetable oils and fats are important renewable raw materials for use by the biodiesel industry. One drawback of this industry is the large amounts of glycerol produced as a by-product. Consequently, crude glycerol is ...
