 Summary
Importance of hydrogenation
of vegetable oil??

 Increasing the stability of the oil

 Improve its utility

Problem statement

Commercial hydrogenation reaction

 Nickel as catalyst
 Required high temperature and pressure
 High formation of trans fatty acids
(unhealthy for human consumption)
How to solve this problem?

 Noble metal catalyst

 Effect of ultrasonic irradiation on
hydrogenation reaction

Catalyst preparation

Add NaOH 0.1M and immerse sample

Metal salt + PVP reflux until dark
mix in water and colloidal solution
brown homogeneous inside ultrasonic bath
methanol solvent dispersion obtain.

Catalyst with highest dispersion Sample analysis for

and smallest particles will be characterize the
selected to hydrogenation colloidal particles
Hydrogenation reaction

Catalyst and H2 charge several

time and catalyst Palm olein inject to
butan-1-ol fed into reactor
reactor activate for 60 min

Sample taken at 10 min Reaction start

intervals and methylated immediately at 32oC and
before analyze with GC atmospheric pressure

Effect of ultrasonic irradiation in
hydrogenation reaction
Effect of ultrasonic irradiation on Pt
and Pd catalyst in hydrogenation of
palm olein
 Small particles size of Pt and Pd produced ~1.3 nm
 At molar ratio of palm olein to Pt catalyst of
25000:1 has the highest TON
 Ultrasonic irradiation increased conversion of
linoleate compared to conventional stirring
 Pt has higher selectivity of stearate but lower trans
meanwhile Pd has higher selectivity of monoenes
but higher trans formation
