The Cottonseed oil methyl ester (COME) was prepared using an alkali -catalyzed trans esterification reaction, and its chemical composition and cold flow properties (CFP) were studied. Two approaches, viz. blending with petrodiesel and treating with cold flow improver (CFI) were used to improve the CFP of COME. The results showed that COME was mainly composed of fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs): Content / wt.% 0.98 23.36 2.90 0.30 0.15 0.72 19.54 0.10 50.96 0.26 0.07 NOTE: C m:n is the shorthand
