Abstract- Corn stalk has a high content of cellulose that has the potential to make the composition of alginate-cellulose xanthate beads. Alginate and cellulose are biodegradable, renewable and non-meltable polymers that have wide applications in various industry sectors. The purpose of this research is to know the difference of addition of porogenic agent of CaCO3 and NaCl which produce optimum beads based on functional group and swelling power. Furthermore, optimum beads are characterized to know the morphology, topology, and porosity. This research is experimental. The variation in the concentration of the porogenic addition of CaCO3 and NaCl is 0; 0.5 and 1 gram. Characterization of alginate-cellulose xanthate beads using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) and Scanning Electron Microscope-Energy Dispersive X-Ray (SEM-EDX). The result of synthesis obtained on beads of alginate-cellulose xanthate are known as bigger pore with the little amount on the addition of porogenic CaCO3, whereas with the addition of porogen NaCl obtained by smaller pore with big amount.
