Impact of Palm Kernel Oil (PKO) Biodiesel-Contaminated Catfish on Hepatic Function of Rat

Biodiesel is defined by ASTM International as a fuel composed of monoalkyl esters of long-chain fatty acids derived from renewable vegetable oils or animal fats meeting the requirements of ASTM D6751. Vegetable oils and animal fats are principally composed of triacylglycerols (TAG) consisting of longchain fatty acids chemically bound to a glycerol (1,2,3-propanetriol) backbone. The chemical process by which biodiesel is prepared is known as the transesterification reaction, which involves a TAG reaction with a short-chain monohydric alcohol normally in the presence of a catalyst at elevated temperature to form fatty acid alkyl esters (FAAE) and glycerol. The conversion of TAG to biodiesel is a stepwise process whereby the alcohol initially reacts with TAG as the alkoxide anion to produce FAAE and diacylglycerols DAG, reaction.
