In this study, our objective is to synthesize a biobased antioxidant additive for Diesel fuel during the storage. Our choice was made particularly on the olive oil as raw material because of its oleic acid content which is more to 75%. The processes involved were epoxidation of oleic acid of the olive oil, opening of the oxirane ring, and esterification. The structures of the products were confirmed by FTIR. To test the effectiveness of our biobased antioxidant additive, we carried out Accelerated Oxidation Test – AOT on diesel without additive (blank) and diesel with additive with various concentrations: 2000,4000 and 6000 ppm. The oxidative degradation of diesel with or without antioxidants was investigated by UV-visible spectroscopy was used to monitor the changes using peroxide value. A remarkable stability of diesel with antioxidant additive comparing with the blank confirms the inhibition of the oxidation phoneme and thus of the good efficiency of antioxidant additive from the optimal concentration of 2000ppm.
