It is reported in the literature [26] that CHDA esters can undergo isomerization at temperatures above 230[degrees]C tending to reach the thermodynamic trans/cis ratio (66% trans), while CHDM does not suffer isomerization in the typical melt polycondensation conditions (240-260[degrees]C).
Summary: In this research work, the aim is to produce a relatively novel zeolite-zeolite (MFI-FAU) composite catalyst having better potential of catalyzing isomerization of lighter hydrocarbons such as light naphtha, n-pentane, n-hexane, n-heptane and mixture thereof.

Among the topics are sucrose-transforming enzymes: hydrolysis and isomerization, pectinases and their biotechnological applications, the role of intrinsic and supplemented enzymes in brewing and beer properties, microbial linamerase in cassava fermentation, and extremophiles as potential resources for food processing enzymes.
All these fatty acids undergo isomerization, oxidation, polymerization and decomposition during heating and the degree of transformation through these processes depend on the stability of the unsaturated fatty acids in the glyceride molecules [1-5].
