A purified peroxidase enzyme solution was prepared from custard apple pulp, and its characteristics studied. Its catalytic effect on oxidizing various aromatic amines and phenols was reported. Ascorbic acid oxidase is shown to be absent in the enzyme extract. The influence of temperature, pH, and concentrations of sulphur dioxide, ascorbic acid, sucrose, potassium cyanide, and hydrogen peroxide on the enzyme activity are indicated. The “PZ” value for custard apple pulp was found to be 0.06 on dry basis.
