    • 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 ...
    • Empirical equations for viscosity and specific heat capacity determination of fatty acids 

      Ferrer, Gerard; Barreneche Güerisoli, Camila; Palacios, Anabel; Solé, Aran; Fernández Renna, Ana Inés; Cabeza, Luisa F. (Elsevier, 2017)
      Phase change materials (PCM) used in thermal energy storage (TES) systems have been presented, over recent years, as one of the most effective options in energy storage. Saturated fatty acids are one of the most used PCM ...
