    Abstract

    Hydro-cracking is the catalytic thermal hydro-decomposed process that changes the long chain of hydrocarbon to become oil fraction with the shorter hydrocarbon chain. In this preliminary work, hydro-cracking of Jarak seed oil was studied to investigate the catalytic activity of the catalyst. The catalysts used in this study have double functions which are the metal component as a hydrogenation catalyst and the acid component as the cracking catalyst. Initially, TiO2-pillared-montmorillonite based Co-Mo catalysts have been characterized by the adsorption-desorption of N2 to view its porosity and structure. The results showed that the TiO2 pillared montmorillonite increases significantly the total pore volume and the specific surface area of their initial montmorillonite features. It is concluded that the catalytic activity of TiO2 pilared montmorillonite is more active than its montmorillonite parent. In addition, Co-Mo catalysts were loaded on TiO2 pillared montmorillonite enhanced the catalytic activity of hydro-cracking of Jarak seed oil.
