ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the tin-catalyzed esterification and transesterification reactions. It highlights the research and development of organic and inorganic tin catalysts and discusses the kinetic properties and catalytic activity of catalysts in free fatty acids (FFA) esterification and triglycerides (TG) transesterification reactions for biodiesel production. It concludes that compounds based on tin can be used for the synthesis of heterogeneous catalysts for biodiesel production.
