Title: Room temperature synthesis of biodiesel using sulfonated graphitic carbon nitride

Abstract

Sulfonation of graphitic carbon nitride (g-CN) affords a polar and strongly acidic catalyst, Sg-CN, which displays unprecedented reactivity and selectivity in biodiesel synthesis and esterification reactions at room temperature.
