In this article, we describe the selection of medium components like pH, temperature, carbon sources and nitrogen sources for the optimal production of extracellular peroxidase by Coprinus sp. (AKL 02) with a series of experiments which is important for growth and enzyme production. The high quality enzyme elicited by the fungus has greater potential for industrial application especially waste water treatment.
