In this work we investigated the synthesis of methyl esters (biodiesel) of oil obtained from the microalgae
Scenedesmus dimorphus through the hydro-esterification process (esterification process preceded by hydrolysis) as possible
alternative for conventional processes. There is interest to develop new raw materials and reactions processes that favors
the maintenance of biodiesel in the global energy matrix.
Keywords: Biodiesel, hydroesterification, microalgae scenedesmus dimorphus.
