Acylation of different amino derivatives (ethanol amine, diethanol amine, N-aminoethylpiperazine) was carried out under green conditions with oleic acid or tail oil fatty acids. The experiments were carried out using as heterogeneous catalysts mesoporous Al-Meso and UL-ZSM-5 with Si/Al ratios between 100 and 20, in the range of the temperatures 80-180 °C without any solvent or in octane or water. The efficiency of the catalysts for the acylation of the investigated substrates appeared to be directly dependent on the Si/Al ratio and the size of the pores. The selectivity toward esters or amides was firstly controlled by temperature, and then by the Si/Al ratios. Additionally, both the conversion and selectivity were controlled by the solvent in which the reaction was carried out. The use of water led mostly to a mixture of esters and amides.
