In this study, syntheses of bifunctional catalyst (CaO-MgO/SiO2) with different ratios of CaO: MgO:SiO2 of 1:1:3 and 1:1:5 were carried out by sol-gel method. The catalysts were subjected to calcination temperatures of 500, 600, 700, 800, 900oC for 6 hours at peak temperatures, and then tested as catalyst in a series of transesterification of rubber seed oil without and with the use of coconut oil as co-reactant. Several kinetic variables of transesterification were also investigated. The results revealed that the catalyst with the composition of CaO-MgO/SiO2 1:1:5 and subjected to calcination temperature of 800°C functioned as the most active catalyst. The highest percent of conversion (90%) was resulted from the experiment with the use of 5% catalyst, 50 mL methanol, 10% co-reactant, temperature of 70oC and reaction time of 6 hours.
