1-Octadecene can be produced from 1-octadecanol through the reduction process using ZSiA catalyst in a fixed bed reactor that was operated at 400 o C. The reduction process using hydrogen as a carrier gas. Five grams 1-octadecanol was put into evaporator and 5 g of catalyst was put into the reactor fixed bed system. Furthermore, the reactor was heated through 400 o C and the evaporator was heated through the feed (1octadecanol) was reached the boiling point. Then the product was outflow through the cooler and was collected in the bottle. The product was analyzed using GCMS. The reduction process of 1-octadecanol was produced 1-octadecene to reach 20,21 % of 1-octadecene, 14,37 % of 5-octadecene and 10,40 % of 9-octadecene. The product had physical properties, yellow and flammable.
