- ItemInsights into chalcone analogues with potential as antioxidant additives in diesel–biodiesel blends(2022) Borges, Igor Dalarmelino; Faria, Eduardo Coelho da Mata; Custodio, Jean Marcos Ferreira; Duarte, Vitor Santos; Fernandes, Fernanda de Sousa; Alonso, Christian Gonçalves; Silva, Valter Henrique Carvalho; Oliveira, Guilherme Roberto de; Napolitano, Hamilton BarbosaBiodiesel production is one of the promising strategies to reduce diesel consumption and an important contribution to climate change. However, biodiesel stability remains a challenging problem in biofuel use in the global energy matrix. In this context, organic additives have been investigated to minimize these problems and reduce harmful emissions to comply with fuel requirement standards. In this study, we discuss a comprehensive structural description, a behavior of B15 [85% volume of diesel and 15% volume of biodiesel (B100)] stability in the presence of antioxidants (chalcone analogues), and a theoretical calculation to pave the way for clarifying and expanding the potential of title compounds as an antioxidant additive for diesel–biodiesel blends. Finally, a systematic description of the oxidation stability was undertaken using a specialized machine learning computational pySIRC platform.
- ItemA new halogen-chalcone with potential for application in biofuels(2020) Faria, Eduardo Coelho da Mata; Duarte, Vitor Santos; Silva, Aline Magalhães da; Fernandes, Fernanda de Sousa; Oliveira, Guilherme Roberto de; Napolitano, Hamilton BarbosaFossil fuels, which represent an important villain for the terrestrial ecosystem, are non-renewable sources of energy, which prompt many discussions about how long petroleum will remain available for use. As an alternative, new energy sources have been explored, including biofuels, such as biodiesel and ethanol. However, their use can raise some problems, such as lower storage stability associated with poor oxidation stability and lower energy availability, which affect consumption, emissions, and energy efficiency. In this context, a comprehensive study with structural description, theoretical calculations, and calorific power test was performed for a new halogen chalcone 4-(4-chlorophenyl)-1-[4-(2-oxo-2-phenylethoxy)phenyl]butan-2-one to understand its supramolecular arrangement and physicochemical properties. The structural description was carried out by X-ray diffraction with the contribution of Hirshfeld surfaces. The theoretical calculations were carried out using density functional theory with the contribution of calorific power determined by a calorimetric pump. All observed results characterize the new chalcone as a potential additive for biofuels.
