The Chinese tallow tree is one of the four major woody oil trees in China. The method of preparing biodiesel from Chinese tallow kernel oil was studied by nanometer magnetic solid catalyst. Central combination design method was applied to design the experiment and the optimal esterification ratio is 96.78%. The biodiesel mainly contains fatty acid ester of C16:0, C18:0, C18:1, C18:2, C18:3, determined by Gaseous phase chromatogram.
