Technical Abstract: The development of sulfur-free additives which are compatible with bio-based lubrication fluids is an important topic. Utilizing an epoxidation route, this type of additive was made using dialklyphosphates and methyl oleate. The ring opening reaction of epoxidized methyl oleate produces primarily an alkyl dioxaphospholane group in the olechemical. This compound has potential for use in the bio-based lubricant industry, as well as coating applications. Yield of this product is ~25%, which can be increased slightly with the use of a heterogeneous catalyst. The titanium (IV)/zirconium (IV) system was used with varied molar ratios of the metals. The 50/50 mol % catalyst was the most effective, giving a yield of the desired compound of 37%. The trend of a higher surface area with greater reactivity was observed.
