CITRIC ACID 50% sol.

Citric acid 50% solution

Citric acid is used as a catalyst in biodiesel production due to its high acidity and ability to promote the transesterification reaction, which is a critical step in producing biodiesel. During transesterification, the fatty acid esters in the feedstock are converted into methyl or ethyl esters, which are the main components of biodiesel. Citric acid is a weak organic acid that has a pKa of 3.1, which makes it an effective acid catalyst for this reaction. Additionally, citric acid is biodegradable and non-toxic, which makes it an eco-friendly alternative to other acid catalysts. In summary, the use of citric acid in biodiesel production is essential for promoting the transesterification reaction and producing high-quality biodiesel. Its effectiveness as a catalyst, eco-friendliness, and low cost make it a popular choice in the industry.
