Hydrodeoxygenation (HDO) reaction of furfural derivatives have widely studied because these reaction produce saturated alkane which potensial for renewable fuels. Nickel based catalyst impregnated in to ZrO2-SiO2 (Ni/ZrO2-SiO2) was prepared and its activity is evaluated for HDO of furfurilidene aceto (FAc) and difurfurilidene acetone (F2Ac). Ni/ZrO2-SiO2 catalys was prepared from Ni(NO3)2.6H2O with 10% Ni loading over ZrO2-SiO2 by wet impregnation method. Characterization using X-ray showed the diffraction of Ni detected at 2θ = 44.42, 51.73, and 76.26. Catalyst activity for HDO of FAc and F2Ac was carried out at 200oC for 2 hours in batch system. According to gas chromatography analysis, the conversion of product is 100% with selectivity for 2-octanol and dodeka-6-ene is 88,22% and 2,99%, respectively.
