This paper presents the results obtained in the catalytic cracking of palm oil using phosphoric acid in different percentages (12, 24 and 30% w/w) impregnated on silica. The reaction products were analyzed by gas chromatography, infrared spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance and as the acid value. The acidic and textural properties of the catalysts were obtained by analyzes of adsorption/desorption of N2 (BET method), temperature programmed desorption of NH3 (NH3 TPD) and total acidity by Hammett indicators.
