A sulfonic acid functionalized carbon catalyst prepared under mild conditions with an in situ diazonium coupling method is shown to be highly active for biodiesel production in the transesterification of triolein. Stability is improved compared to carbon based catalyst sulfonated by treatment with concentrated sulfuric acid.
