It is currently disposed by dumping it in landfills causing en vironmental problems. SBC can be source of low cost oil for production of biofuels and chemicals. In this study pyrolysis of residual crude palm oil adsorbed in SBC was carried out using coupled TGA-FTIR. The clay was heated in the temperature range of 30 - 900 °C at the rate of 20 °C/min under nitrogen flow. The evolved gasses were transferred simultaneously to a glass cell, followed by the FTIR. The identification of compounds was done using a library matching The crude palm oil adsorbed in SBC was comple tely pyrolyzed in the temperature range 330 - 440 °C with evolution of hydrocarbons, while the virgin crude palm oil without clay was pyrolyzed at higher temperature range 370 - 510 °C. The possible groups of compounds formed in the pyrolysis of crude palm oil were cycloparaffins, normal paraffins, olefinic hydrocarbons and some alcohols.

This is due to its versatility in incorporation of wide variety materials and ease of process manipulation for such technology. Organic-inorganic hybrid sol gel solution was prepared through hydrolysis and conden...
