Title: Fuel, Insecticide/Pesticide and Oil/Fat
Issue Date: Oct-2003
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: Fuel-During the last decade ethanol and biodiesel became the best-known liquid biofuels. As for diesel fuel renewable substitutes, fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) biodiesel, appear to be the most popular since its properties are similar to mineral diesel and can be used in conventional diesel engines without significant modifications.

Insecticide/Pesticide- Aedes aegypti (Linn.) is an important vector of dengue fever in India. Although source reduction through proper environmental sanitation and effective exclusion of the mosquito from water stored for domestic use can keep populations of A. aegypti in check, the use of insecticides is often necessary in control operations.

Oil/Fat- Palm oil is a rich source of vitamin E, carotenoids , tocotrienols and tocopherols which are natural antioxidants and act as scavengers of oxygen free radicals. 12-O-Tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) is a known oxidant that promotes tumourigenesis in mouse skin through the elaboration of oxidative stress.
