common method to identify biodiesel potential algae are
.... nile red fluorescence measurement
..... gravimetric method

these method are costly and time consuming ..... but we can get to know amount of triglyceride present in a sample by simple test of saponification, but stil no papers use this method to screen oil potential algae..why?
