"The use of vegetable oils for engine fuels may seem insignificant today. But such oils may become in the course of time as important as the petroleum and coal tar products of the present time" (RudolfDiesel, 1912). Nowadays, environment has been affected seriously by the industrialization. Many effects such as green house effect, undegradable materials are slowlycausing harmful to environmentand human lives. Every country suggestof using biodiesel due to its degradability, safety with environment and also many advanced properties compared with mineral-based fluids. The main resources for synthesis ofbio-based diesel are various and we decided to choose palm kernel oil, jatropha curcus oil and canola curcas oil as the base oils, and also sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide as main catalysts. The aim of this research is to study the advance of the bio-based diesel and also the kinetics of reactions and characteristics ofdiesel produced from different bio-based oil feed stocks.
