Abstract: The antibacterial activity assessment of the Penicillium sp. which are collected from chromium mines of Sukinda, Jajpur district of Odisha, have been studied against three pathogenic bacteria viz. Staphylococcus sp. , Pseudomonas Sp. and Xanthomonas oryzae. The Penicillium fungus isolated from chromium contaminated soil was showing antibacterial activity, which were not observed by normal soil fungus. From the fungal extract different functional groups has been identified through FTIR analysis. The isolated fungal strains were showing antibacterial activities against collected bacterial pathogens due to presence of functional groups like alkane, alkyl halide, aldehyde, alkyne, amines and bioactive compounds like alcohol. Hence from this study, it can be concluded from the study that bioactive compounds found from the fungal isolates can be useful in the field of agriculture and act as a biocontrol agent against the above said pathogens.
