here are many medicinal applications found in Sapodilla fruit, bark, leaves & seeds like inhibition of ehrlich ascites carcinoma,
in vitro and in vivo antioxidant activity, free radical scavenging activity & antimicrobial activity. Biodiesel is a more attractive
product from Sapodilla seed oil for diesel engines, because of the seeds are chiefly available & non-edible to all human beings.
Since most of the biodiesel were derived from edible oils like soybean, sunflower, rapeseed, palm etc. These oils are essentially
edible in India and other developing countries, use in biodiesel leads to the food crisis. Because of the non-edible oil having high
FFA content, which is not suitable for normal transesterification process, hence a two-step catalyzed method i.e. acid catalyzed
method followed by alkali catalyzed, was used to prepare the biodiesel. For this study the Sapodilla seed oil was used to extract
the biodiesel. Therefore, this research mainly concentrates the non-edible oils as feed stocks for biodiesel production to reduce
the cost of biodiesel.
Keywords: medicinal, non-edible, Biodiesel, feed stock, Sapodilla, acid catalyzed
