Background: Coniothyrium had great potential in controlling Sclerotinia diseases in green houses and field with a high specificity. An important and steadily increasing number of natural products have been isolated from Coniothyrium spp, and the biological activities have not yet been fully elaborated.
Objective: To promote the development of Coniothyrium source.
Method: To analysis and sum up the literatures concerned.
Results: The secondary metabolites of Coniothyrium mainly consisted of polyketides, polyaromatic compounds, and simple aromatic compounds, which have strong biological activity.
Conclusion: Coniothyrium spp. as a source of biologically active metabolites is especially signifcant and ensures interest on this subject for years to come.
