This research synthesizes a reactive catalyst. (KI/CaO/Al2O3) for use in transesterification reaction Palm oil and methanol The catalyst was prepared by immersing 35 wt% of potassium iodide (KI) onto 50 wt% of calcium oxide (CaO) and alumina (Al2O3) support. The temperature was 500 oC for 5 hours. The crystal structure of the catalyst was analyzed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) technique and the base strength was studied by Hammett indicator method. catalyst in transesterification process contains accelerators The molar ratio of methanol to oil and the reaction time. It was found that using a 5 % wt.
