Abstract

In order to prepare hydrocarbon fuel, sodium soap made from Swida wilsoniana fruit oil was chosen as a model compound with significant molecular polarity for preparing hydrocarbon fuel by microwave-assisted pyrolysis. The result showed that the hydrocarbon content were usually above 70%. In addition, its density and dynamic viscosity were 0.850-0.875 g/cm 3 and 2.09-2.85 mm 2/s, respectively, similar with petroleum diesel. The highest peak in the GC-MS profile of liquid product was fifteen carbon alkenes, decarboxylation was proved to be main reaction in microwave-assisted pyrolysis.
