5) and could be attributable to the biomass decomposition by EG (alcoholysis reaction).
Biodiesel production takes place throughout an alcoholysis reaction known as transesterification, where triglycerides with an alcohol and a catalyst react to generate esters of the alcohol called biodiesel, and glycerol as a by-product [2].

The Ti-O-Ti network can also be created by alcoholysis of the Ti alkoxide precursor, which again is slower than hydrolysis and easier to control [18].
Transesterification or alcoholysis is the reaction of a lipid with an alcohol to form esters and a byproduct, glycerol [71].
In the enzymatic oil transesterification (alcoholysis) other factors can influence the yield of the product and the reaction rate as well.
The alcoholysis of primary carboxamides has been reported to proceed in the presence of acidic catalysts (7), (13) or via carboximidamide intermediates.

First, an intermediate was chemically produced under mild conditions and subsequently esterified with phytosterols through alcoholysis, assisted by a lipase, using a mixed solvent system.
In addition to their hydrolytic activity on triglycerides, lipases catalyze esterification, transesterification, acidolysis, alcoholysis and aminolysis (Table 3).
Transesterification is the general term used to describe the important class of organic reactions, where an ester (fatty acid ester-RCOOR') is transformed into another ester (Alkyl esterRCOOR?) through interchange of alkyl groups and is also called as alcoholysis. Transesterification is an equilibrium reaction and the transformation occurs by mixing the reactants.
