Alkyd Resin Synthesis from Mango Seed Oil (Mangifer Indica, Anacardiceae)

Investigations were carried out on mango seed oil to analyze their suitability and extent of cross-linkage in alkyd resin synthesis. The oil was isolated from the seed kernel by soxhlet extraction method using n-hexane, characterized and used for bio-resin formulation. The oil yield, relative density, free fatty acid value, iodine value, and saponification value, etc, were carried out according to standard. Alcholysis and esterification processes were carried out in three neck flask (2000 ml), to convert the oil to alkyd resin. FTIR spectroscopy was used to identify the absorption peaks and formation of ester bonding sites at 11698 per centimeter, with the C=O stretching at 1240, 1221, 1188 per centimetre for C—O stretching frequency. A complete disappearance of the peak at 2920 per centimetre in the alkyd resin structure, and the appearance of the peak at 1240, 1221, 1188 per centimetre indicated occurrence of oil modification. The viscosity of 448cP compared well with the commercial grade having 457cP at temperature range between 25–33°C. Other parameters compared well to the commercial alkyd resin.
