Environmental concern has driven the need to remove sulphur compound in fuel. Since, oxidative desulfurization is conducted under very mild reaction conditions, much attention has been recently devoted to this process. In this study sulphur compound in dodecane was oxidized by oxidizing agent. The correspond sulfone and sulfoxide are more soluble in ionic liquid and will not recombine with fuel. Thus, this ensures for better sulphur removal performance. The aim of this project is to study the potential of ionic liquid to remove sulphur in diesel. Three types ionic liquid and 5 different oxidant/sulphur ratio was used to determine the optimum system for oxidative desulphurization. The best oxidant: sulphur ratio is 5: 1, with 30% sluphur removal. The best ionic liquid is bmim octyl sulphate, with sulphur removal up to 70%. The best condition was then used to remove sulphur from diesel. Sulphur removal percentage of diesel was around 50%. Based on the result obtained, bmim octyl sulphate showed a good potential as axtractiong agent for sulphur removal from diesel.
