Biodiesel potentials of two phenotypes of Cyperus esculentus unconventional oils

May 2018 - Vol 9 Num. 1

Two varieties of Cyperus esculentus, identified by their phenotype (black or yellow) were collected from Benin. To investigate their biodiesel profiles, the roots were extracted with hexane. Physicochemical properties and fuel profiles of obtained oils (YCE and BCE, respectively Yellow C. esculentus and Black C....
