Extractive reaction has interesting potential for biodiesel synthesis as the temperature window for the optimum process does not require reaching the distillation state, the high reaction temperature deteriorates the fuel property and the consumption of non-edible oils faces free fatty acids hurdle. This paper reports the characterization of flooding properties of the liquid-liquid system of palm oil and ethanol. Determination of the Sauter diameter of ethanol and oil droplet in the excess oil or ethanol, coalescence factor of excess volume in various ratios and hydrodynamics in cylindrical viscometer were carried on.
