Annually, lignocellulose or also generally known as plant biomass, has been accumulated in a massive quantity in the form of agro-cultural waste. Cellulose and hemicelluloses within plant biomass can be used in fermentation process involved in the production of value-added compound such as phenolic compounds. The purpose of this research was to determine the optimal physiological condition for the production of phenolic compounds by Penicillium sp. under solid state fementation (SSF). Therefore, the main objective of this study is to produce phenolic compound from Penicillium sp. via solid-state fermentation. The physical parameters affecting SSF in order to produce optimum amount of phenolic compound, which include types of substrate, incubation period, initial moisture content and pH, were studied. From this research, among the three different substrates, rice husk proved to be the best for the production of phenolic compounds under solid state fermentation condition. Maximum production of phenolic compounds was obtained after 6 days of incubation using 60% moisture content, at pH 5 and yeast extract as addition nitrogen sources. After each parameter was optimised, the amount of total phenolic content obtained was 20.83 mg/g
