Gerhard Knothe spends much of his time researching Biodiesel, Organic chemistry, Diesel fuel, Vegetable oil and Fatty acid. Gerhard Knothe interconnects Transesterification, Acid value and Moiety in the investigation of issues within Biodiesel. The Iodine value, NOx, Degree of unsaturation and Chemical composition research Gerhard Knothe does as part of his general Organic chemistry study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Degradation, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.
His Diesel fuel research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Analytical chemistry, Biofuel, Cetane number and Animal fat. He has researched Vegetable oil in several fields, including Lubricity and Fatty acid methyl ester. The Fatty acid study combines topics in areas such as Melting point, Ethyl ester, Viscosity and Ricinoleic acid.
His primary areas of study are Biodiesel, Organic chemistry, Diesel fuel, Fatty acid and Biodiesel production. He has included themes like Waste management, Biofuel, Transesterification, Vegetable oil and Pulp and paper industry in his Biodiesel study. His study brings together the fields of Oleic acid and Organic chemistry.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Fatty acid methyl ester, Cetane number, Lubricity, Animal fat and NOx. The various areas that Gerhard Knothe examines in his Fatty acid study include Food science, Viscosity and Botany. His research integrates issues of Raw material and Acid value in his study of Biodiesel production.
His primary scientific interests are in Biodiesel, Fatty acid, Organic chemistry, Transesterification and Linoleic acid. His Biodiesel research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Raw material, Pulp and paper industry and Diesel fuel. His study on Diesel fuel also encompasses disciplines like
Gerhard Knothe works mostly in the field of Fatty acid, limiting it down to topics relating to Food science and, in certain cases, Biofuel. His research in Transesterification focuses on subjects like Saturated fatty acid, which are connected to EN 14214 and Horticulture. In his study, Air pollution and Renewable resource is inextricably linked to Waste management, which falls within the broad field of Biodiesel production.
