The traditional method of preparing n-butyl oleate is the esterification of oleic acid and n-butanol in the presence of concentrated sulfuric acid as catalyst, under reflux conditions.
ECOBIOFOR developed three different bio-based solvents--a bio-ethyl acetate produced from bio-ethanol by esterification, two butyl bio-acetates, made from bio-butanol by esterification and a bio-butyl glycol produced from bio-butanol.
The obtained 1-hydroxyethyl-2-substituted phenoxymethyl benzimidazoles were finally translated into the target title compounds 8a-h by an indirect esterification method in which three O-H groups of gallic acid were first protected by acetyls and deprotected after the esterification reaction by adding hydrazine hydrate.

The authors observed that the clove essential oil after esterification presented higher antioxidant activity compared to crude essential oil ([IC.
The fatty acids in the fat from casein and serum were made into their methyl ester by saponification followed by esterification and analyzed by GC-FID.
Waste oils and fats unfortunately contain free fatty acids, which must be removed by refining or esterification.
The ENSEL technology uses a solid catalyst that combines esterification of high free fatty acid feedstocks and transesterification of triglycerides into a single step, which eliminates waste, improves process efficiency and expands feedstock options.
The Trans esterification experiment was performed using sodium hydroxide as Catalyst and 6:1 methanol to oil ratio with reaction temperature of 45 C.
