Abstract: Sulphur is an important macronutrient and integral components of organic compounds present in plants, animals, microorganisms and humans. Thus present in nature everywhere, degradation of sulphur compounds become a preliminary unavoidable task. As we know many fungi; either alone or in consortium, takes part in deterioration of minerals thus balancing the environment. Sulphur oxidizing fungus is surprisingly a negligible study area but there are some reports of sulphur oxidizing fungus having applications in many areas. The fungus either use sulphur compounds as substrate for their energy production or dissolve the sulphur compounds by secreting acids thus making them a better alternative for sulphur oxidation purpose. Also they are good bio controlling agent and can be used in agriculture and other environmental applications.
