Enormous metabolic versatility and richness of secondary metabolism is one of the most characteristic traits of fungi. These secondary metabolites are importantly required during various physiological processes, such as to combat the immune system, to acquire essential micronutrients, to compete in the environment and hosts, and pathogenicity. The fungal secondary metabolites are of diverse nature in chemical structures and biological activities. The functional efficiency of these secondary metabolites depends on physicochemical properties of the molecules. The physicochemical properties of fungal secondary metabolites were calculated and analysed to study its relation with functions and biological role. The analyses suggest varied pattern of correlation between molar refractivity, topological polar surface area and water solubility of secondary metabolites. Based on overall result it has inferred that the above characteristic physicochemical parameters may provide the chemical characteristics and functional specificity of a secondary metabolite.

Keywords: Secondary metabolites, physicochemical properties, bioactivity, pathogenicity
