Glycerol as a starting material to prepare palmitate derivatives
MetadataShow full item record
Glycidyl palmitate, used to obtain high purity monoglycerides and epoxy resins, can be obtained from glycerol using a two-step process. The first step of this new approach consists in a reaction of esterification-chlorination of glycerol. An elimination reaction using Cs2CO3 allows the corresponding glycidyl ester to be prepared from the chlorohydrin ester intermediate.
