A kinetic study of KOH-catalyzed transesterification of palm oil with methanol was carried out. Overall transesterification reaction consists of three consecutive second order reversible reaction steps. Experiments were performed to estimate the saturated concentration of methanol in oil, average methanol droplet size, reaction constant, k and diffusion coefficient of methanol in oil. The experiments were performed with reaction mixture that had methanol to oil molar ratio of 6:1 and the catalyst was potassium hydroxide (2 wt. % of methanol). The reaction were conducted at room temperature of 24ºC for 180 minutes. Analysis of FAME will be carry out by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to get the result for oil conversion over reaction time. The overall reaction rate, roverall of the palm oil-methanol transesterification was calculated, consequently, prove the kinetic model
