A solid Brønsted acid of amorphous carbon bearing SO3H, COOH and phenolic OH groups has been studied as a catalyst for biodiesel production. The carbon material functions as a stable and efficient catalyst for the formation of biodiesel from oleic acid at 353 K; the catalytic performance is 70-80% that of sulfuric acid. The carbon material also exhibits remarkable catalytic performance for transesterification of triolein at 403 K, maintaining high catalytic activity even in the presence of water. These results suggest that this catalyst can directly convert crude vegetable oils composed of triglycerides, free higher fatty acids and water into biodiesel with minimal energy consumption. © 2010 The Author(s).

Amorphous carbon bearing sulfonic acid groups, a new type of solid Brønsted acid catalyst, was investigated for potential application to environmentally benign biodiesel production and cellulose saccharification. The carbon material exhibits much higher catalytic performance for the esterification of higher fatty acids, transesterification of triglycerides and the hydrolysis of cellulose than conventional solid acid catalysts. © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
