Abstract

Trimyristin isolation from the nutmeg and synthesis of methylester using heterogen catalyst has been carried out

in several stages, included isolation of nutmeg oil, trimyristin isolation and synthesis of methylester. The

synthesis was started by isolation of nutmeg oil with steam distillation for 8 hours. It yields was 308 mL of

nutmeg oil. The isolation trimyristin from nutmeg with maseration using chloroform yields trimirystin 17 g

(11%), structure elusidation of these products was analized by FTIR and 1H-NMR. The synthesis methylester

using CaO catalyst and methanol yields 1,78 g (89,02%) of methyl myristate. Product purity was tested by GC

and structure elusidation was analized by FTIR and MS.
