Aurantiogliocladium is an orange-coloured benzoquinone isolated from a strain of Gliocladium roseum reported by researchers at ICI, England in 1951. The structure of aurantiogliocladin was resolved by Vischer two years later. Aurantiogliocladin exhibits weak to moderate antibacterial and antifungal activity, however the metabolite’s bioactivity has received little further attention.
