To study fatty acid esterification process, stearic acid esterification with low aliphatic alcohols like methanol, ethanol etc. was studied in batch reactor using oxalic acid, homogeneous milder organic acid as a catalyst. Methyl stearate formation was observed by change in acid value. It was confirmed by FTIR analysis. The process parameters including recovery and reusability were studied and optimized.
