Silvia Daniela Romano is an assistant professor and director of the Renewable Energies Group at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and also a member of CONICET. Prof. Dr-Eng. Romano's current research interests include liquid systems; production and characterization of liquid biofuels; correlation of biodiesel properties; modelling of physico-chemical properties in biodiesel; design and construction of equipment of characterization properties by international standards; and measurement of properties for the characterization of biofuels not included in international standards.
Patricio Aníbal Sorichetti is an associate professor at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, as well as a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the IEEE Dielectrics and Insulation Society. Professor Sorichetti's present research areas are physics of complex fluids and polymers, and dielectric and vicoelastic relaxation processes in liquids and solids.
Dielectric Relaxation Spectroscopy in Biodiesel Production and Characterization presents the application of dielectric techniques in the production process of biodiesel, and in the characterization of biofuel, raw materials, and effluents. In this comprehensive text, the reader will find information about biodiesel, production processes and biofuel characterization, including the description of dielectric techniques that, although not included in international standards, are a very useful alternative with important advantages. The book, written in a language understandable by non-specialists, provides the concepts and tools for the application and correlation of the results of dielectric measurement with those from other techniques that are included in international standards. Aimed at a broad audience, the text gives a unified presentation, in a clear and concise way, of up-to-date information that would be otherwise scattered in a number of papers, books and patents.
This work, based on the ample research and teaching experience of the authors at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, will be of interest for professionals working in the liquid biofuels industry, researchers entering the field and also for advanced university-level students of related careers.
