The purpose of this study was to determine the order of reaction of hydrolysis process of pineapple leaves by using homogeneous and heterogeneous catalyst and without the catalyst. The homogeneous catalyst used was sulfuric acid and nitric acid with a concentration of 2 M, while the heterogeneous catalyst used was physically activated loam. The hydrolysis temperature is run at 120 °C with reaction times of 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes. The results showed that hydrolysis process using homogeneous catalyst and without catalyst follow order one while hydrolysis by using heterogeneous catalyst follow the second order.
