Abstract:

Xenobiotics refers to both organic and inorganic substances that mimic natural biochemicals that are essential for life. They may be persistent and often toxic to life. Pharmaceutical industries generate a large amount of waste during manufacturing, housekeeping and maintenance operations. Hence, the present study was attempted to study the impact of these residues in the soil on fungal diversity. The three drugs that were identified were Fungitop F and Fungi top. Results show that the soil recorded very less fungal diversity and all the species of fungi isolated showed decreased growth. Among the three drugs, fungi top inhibited the growth the most among the different fungi. A. flavus had the most inhibitive effect.
