Table 3 Effect of different catalysts dosage on the self-metathesis reaction

From: Single cell oil production by Trichosporon cutaneum from steam-exploded corn stover and its upgradation for production of long-chain α,ω-dicarboxylic acids

Catalyst Dosage (mol %)a Reaction time (h) Conversionb (%)
Grubbs 2nd 0.01 24 28.77 ± 0.76
Grubbs 2nd 0.1 1.5 81.15 ± 2.71
Grubbs 2nd 1 0.5 90.08 ± 3.25
Grubbs 1st 0.1 6 14.01 ± 0.49
  1. Data shown are means of at least three parallel samples (n ≥ 3) and error bars are standard deviations (mean ± SD)
  2. a mol% is the unit defined as the molar quantity of catalyst per 100 g substrate
  3. bConversion (%) = (initial amount of fatty acids − residual amount of fatty acids) (g) × 100/initial amount of fatty acids (g)
