    • Combining biocatalysts to achieve new phase change materials. Application to non-edible animal fat 

      Gallart-Sirvent, Pau; Martín, Marc; Solé, Aran; Villorbina Noguera, Gemma; Balcells Fluvià, Mercè; Cabeza, Luisa F.; Canela i Garayoa, Ramon (Elsevier, 2018)
      The thermal properties of various alkyl threo-9, 10-dihydroxystearates (DHSEs) prepared from non-edible fat were studied. Non-edible animal fat was hydrolyzed in a 93% yield with R. oryzae resting cells. Crude unsaturated ...
    • Fatty acid eutectic mixtures and derivatives from non-edible animal fat as phase change materials 

      Gallart-Sirvent, Pau; Martín, Marc; Villorbina Noguera, Gemma; Balcells Fluvià, Mercè; Solé, Aran; Barreneche Güerisoli, Camila; Cabeza, Luisa F.; Canela i Garayoa, Ramon (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
      A set of compounds from non-edible fat waste was prepared and their thermal behavior was studied. The fat was hydrolyzed and crystallized in a simple and robust process to yield palmitic acid-stearic acid (PA-SA) mixtures. ...
    • Synthesis and Thermophysical Characterization of Fatty Amides for Thermal Energy Storage 

      Canela Xandri, Anna; Villorbina Noguera, Gemma; Balcells Fluvià, Mercè; Fernández Francos, Xavier; Cabeza, Luisa F.; Canela i Garayoa, Ramon (MDPI, 2019)
      Nine monoamides were synthesized from carboxylic acids (C8-C18) and crude glycerol. The final monoamides were the result of a rearrangement of the acyl chain during the final hydrogenation process. The purity of the final ...
