- ... Self-metathesis of fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) from natural oils and commercial oleic acid was carried out using a microwave reactor in solvent-free conditions. Self-metathesis products were further identified and quantified by gas chromatography–mass spectroscopy (GC–MS) and gas chromatography–flame ionization detector (GC–FID). Conversion of ∼50% was achieved within a short span (∼2 min) in ...
