Xylanase is an enzyme that catalyzes the reaction of xylan hydrolysis into xylose. The free enzyme can be used only once, therefore it needs to be made in the form of immobilization. This study aims to determine the optimum conditions for immobilization of xylanase using an acid-activated zeolite. The xylanase immobilization was performed on variations of shaking time (1-5) hours, variation of xylanase concentration (2 - 4 mg / mL) using 0.1 g zeolite at room temperature and a shaking rate of 100 rpm. The amount of xylanase adsorbed on the zeolite was determined by spectrophotometry using the Biuret reagent and the immobilized xylanase activity formed was determined spectrophotometrically using a DNS reagent The results showed that the optimum condition of xylanase immobilization at zeolite was achieved at 3 hrs shaking time and xylanase concentration 3.5 mg / mL with xylanase adsorbed of 156.5 mg/g zeolite and activity 26.67 units.
