In this study, NiO/ZSM-5 composites have been synthesized by the wet impregnation method. Impregnation was carried out by immersing 5 g of ZSM-5 in 100 mL of Ni(NO3)2 solution in whichconcentrations were varied, namely 0, 5, 10, 15, and 20%. The samples were stirred for 6 h then allowed to stand for 22 h, filtered and washed, and then dried in an oven at 80 °C, and finally calcined at 550 °C for 3 h. For simplicity, the products were referred to as NiO/ZSM-5-0, NiO/ZSM-5-5, NiO/ZSM-5-10, NiO/ZSM-5-15, and NiO/ZSM-5-20. Each composite was used as a heterogeneous catalyst in the transesterification reaction of rubber seed oil with methanol. The reaction was carried out with ratio of oil/methanol of 1:6; the amount of catalyst 10% (composite weight/oil volume) at 70°C for 3 h. The results showed that composites were found to indicate good catalytic activity to convert the fatty acids contained in the oil into their corresponding methyl esters. It was found that the highest percentage of conversion of the oil (98%) was achieved using NiO/ZSM-5-10 as a catalyst.
