Optimization of Methyl lactate has been done through two factorial methods, to learn various effective factors such as temperature, pressure, mole ratio for obtain higher conversion. Esterification reactions were carried out under supercritical state of cabondioxide. Optimize condition is formed at 1:8 mole ratio, 110°C temperature and 6 hours.
