Abstract : In the present work, a biodegradable and non-toxic lubricant is formulated from sesame oil (SESO) with viscosity modifiers, antioxidants and antiwear additives. The significance of antiwear additives in SESO blended with antioxidants and viscosity modifiers is evaluated using analysis of variance (ANOVA). The formulated oil is tested for its biodegradability, toxicity, rheological, thermal, tribological and corrosive properties and is compared with commercially available SAE20W40 lubricant. The formulated lubricant is investigated to have better biodegradability, lower toxicity and good thermal properties than SAE20W40. Whereas its pour point, rheological properties, corrosive properties and tribological properties are comparable to that of SAE20W40.
