Fusarium is one of the most important plant pathogens around the world which causes great damages to agriacultural crops. The fungus produces a wide variety of volatiles and bioactive metabolites like mycotoxins, fatty acids and hydrocarbons on artificial medium with antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral and phytotoxic properties. After 21 days inoculating the species Fusarium proliferatum FP85 on PDB, the culture filtrates were subjected to metabolites extraction by EtOAc and phase separating and evaporation. The sediment were dissolved in one ml MtOH, for qualitative detection by GC-MS. The GC-MS results revealed different metabolites such as Pyridine, 3-butyl-; Pyrazine, 3-ethyl-2 ,5-dimethyl-; Palmitic acid; Stearic acid; Oleic acid; Adipic acid; Piperitenone oxide and Phthalic acid, butyl isobutyl ester. Some of detected compounds are phytotoxins and toxic compounds against fungi and bacteria and posses many biological activities.
