Abstract

Epoxidized castor oil (ECO) has synthesized with glacial acetic acid and hydrogen peroxide in the presence of a catalyst. Here hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) acts as an oxygen donor and glacial acetic acid acts as an active oxygen carrier. Epoxidized oils have respectable oxirane oxygen content and highly reactive oxirane rings. The formation of the oxirane ring was confirmed by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) analysis and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) studies. Vegetable oil-based epoxies are sustainable, renewable and biodegradable. These Epoxidized oils can replace petroleum derived materials in numerous industrial applications.
