Fungi are a big world with numerous numbers of species. These species produce a huge number of bioactive secondary metabolites which can be used in very useful industrial, medical and agricultural application. In this study, four bioactive metabolites namely ergosterol, peroxy ergosterol, ?-cyclopiazonic acid and kojic acid were isolated from the Trichoderma viride MM21. Structures of the isolated compounds were assigned by intensive studies of NMR (1 and 2D) mass spectroscopy.
