Preparation of o-palmitoyl alkyl lactates with methyl,ethyl ,prop yl,isopropy l and butyl lactates were attempted in a complex esterification reaction using lipases as catalysts. Compared to lactic acid,alkyl lactates were found to be less inhibitory in nature as they resulted in slightly better yields at shake-flask level. Of the alkyl lactates tested,butyl lactate showed better esterification. Porcine pancreas lipase gave higher yields of esters than Rhizomucor miehei lipase (Lipozyme IM20).
