Investigation of Solvents Efficiencies on Oil Extraction and Biodiesel Production from Hura Crepitans Seeds

Muhammed Nasiru Abdulkadir, Isiaka Adekunle Amoo, Adeniyi Olufemi Adesina

Solvent extraction of oil from seeds of Hura crepitans was carried out with a Soxhlet apparatus, using various solvents. Based on the percentage oil (w/w) obtained from the pulverized seed cotyledon, n-hexane was found to be the most efficient solvent for oil extraction. Base-catalyzed trans-esterification, using methanol, was done to process biodiesel from the extracted oil with 95% (v/v) biodiesel yield. The biodiesel was subsequently tested for its fuel properties and found to conform well to ASTM and EN biodiesel standards.
