The aim of this work was to produce multifunctional additives on vegetable oil basis that provide not only a detergent-dispersant effect in fuel but also other advantageous properties. Besides, the goal was to use raw materials of partly renewable origin in order to meet the biodegradability requirements. Intermediates were produced from polyisobutylene (PIB) maleic anhydride and rapeseed oil methyl ester by a radical-initiated method. These intermediates were used to acylate polyethylene polyamines. The analytical and efficiency tests of the final products showed similar or even better DD properties compared to traditional PIB-succinimides. The new additives also showed additional functional effects (e.g. corrosion-inhibiting and lubricity-improving effects).
