Autocatalytic hydrolysis and autooxidation of crude palm oil under various constant humidities

Author(s): CHOOI Siew Yuen* ; KOH Heng Fui** ; WREN, W G+

The kinetics of autocatalytic hydrolysis of crude palm oil was studied at moisture below solubility using the isopiestic methods, in which the oil was exposed to a volume of sulphuric acid at a certain concentration in a closed system and stored at 55C. Different humidities were created by using different concentrations of sulphuric acid, thereby effecting different activities of water in the oil
