Several factors such as inhibitor, cooking temperature and catalyst, which affect the preparation of epoxidized RBD palm olein acrylate (EPOLA) have been investigated. Inhibitor and high cooking temperature were respectively found to prevent gelation and shorten the cooking time, while the presence of catalyst was found to accelerate the acrylation reaction.
