Each formed amounts of 5-nonanone (BaO more than MgO). A significant deposition of hydrocarbonaceous material onto the catalyst surface is noted. This adsorbed material is characterised using TGA and FTIR and relates to a carboxylate species.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer||Journal:||Catalysis Letters||Volume:||143||Issue:||4||Start page:||364||End page:||369||Copyright (published version):||2013, Springer||Keywords:||Cellulosic biodiesel; Basic catalysts; Catalyst characterisation||DOI:||10.1007/s10562-013-0965-y||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
