The interest in the epoxidation of vegetable oils is constantly growing in the chemical industry. The most common process is based on the oxidation of the unsaturated bonds by peroxyacids generated in situ, in the water phase, using concentrated hydrogen peroxide and the corresponding organic acid in presence of a mineral acid as catalyst. The overall epoxidation reaction is highly exothermic, hence operating conditions should be always addressed by safety considerations related to the possibility of runaway reactions

Abstract

The interest in the epoxidation of vegetable oils is constantly growing in the chemical industry. The most common process is based on the oxidation of the unsaturated bonds by peroxyacids generated in situ, in the water phase, using concentrated hydrogen peroxide and the corresponding organic acid in presence of a mineral acid as catalyst. The overall epoxidation reaction is highly exothermic, hence operating conditions should be always addressed by safety considerations related to the possibility of runaway reactions
