Abstract : Castor oil was hydrolyzed at 245 degrees with 20-100 percent addition of water based on weight of oil and at 235, 245, 255, 265, and 275 degrees with 60 percent water. An increase in the amount of water from 20 to 100 percent raised the yield of the fatty acids from 63 to 80.6 percent and of glycerol from 63.7 to 94 percent. The differences between the results calculated as percent of fatty acids and as glycerol were assumed to be due to further reactions of the free fatty acids especially of ricinoleic acid. The differences decreased at higher temperatures of hydrolysis. (Author)
